My husband claimed he wouldn't like anything homemade for Christmas.  Ha!  I got him!  I made this Domo-kun scarf and hat for him and he loves them!

I used fuzzy brown felt (the kind you get off of a bolt of fabric, not the sheets), although I wanted polar fleece (I couldn't find ANY plain brown polar fleece).
Then, of course, I used white and red felt for the mouth, and shiny black shank buttons for the eyes.

For the scarf:  I cut three long strips of the felt and sewed them together lengthwise, then attached the mouth and eyes to one end (glued the mouth together and then sewed it on, hand-sewed the eyes), then I folded the long scarf over on itself (the face was inside), pinned it, and sewed the long tube, leaving about an eight inch gap at one end so I could turn it inside out.  Then when I turned it inside out, I topstitched around the outside.  

This took about 45 minutes.  Note: let the glue dry on the mouth before you sew over it!

For the hat, I measured my head and then cut a rectangle that was about 2 inches longer (so, I cut it about 25 inches long and about eight to ten inches tall).  I folded over about one inch on one long side and sewed it down (since it was felt, that's all I did, but if I was using a regular fabric I might line it.  Who knows).

I attached the face directly in the middle of the rectangle, then I folded the hat over, right side together, and sewed the back, and then turned it so the face would be in the middle of the hat and the seam would be in the back, and then I sewed across the top.  (Does this description make sense at all??)

I gusseted the corners because it didn't look right just flat.   I don't know if I can explain that in words without pictures...

The hat probably took 15-20 minutes.

Anyway, yay for Domo-kun.

Phew! I thought I was the only one who didn't know what a Domo-kun was...(and still wondering)
Anyway, the hat and scarf look SO GOOD!

Domo-kun is that little brown guy (we call him Mr. Fuzzy in our family), but I am sure you could use the basic idea and do whatever you want -- a blue one would be great!

Domo-kun is a Japanese monster character.  From what I've seen he's not a cartoon but more like stop-motion animated or something similar.  He came from an egg, lives with a rabbit, and farts when he's distressed.  

Here's a website on him.

yardenxanthe, good job on the Domo items, glad your hubby likes them.  I certainly would.

Only problem is, I'm married to Domo-kun, so you and I need to have a chat with him!
