My sisters best friend asked me recently to make her a lion hat & tail for her costume this year!
I'd never really even made a hat before so I looked into it and found this awesome tutorial from Threadbangers: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VlHDe9C-eHg
I edited the pattern for how I wanted it to look, like making the earflaps wider, the back longer, and didn't add a brim.  And also the ears, of course!

I took a lot of pictures, haha


In the video they crochet tassles, but I just braided some yarn, and stitched the ends of it into some lightly stuffed furry tassles!






Haha


Sideview!


Kind of a process photo, the ears were just pinned on, and the tassles hadn't been added yet!



Yeeeaap! Smiley

That might be the cutest thing I've seen in a very long time!
