OK so I'm not sure if this is the right place but really wasn't sure where to post.

Anyhow I wanted to make a cute little hat like thing but I don't like to wear full hats that much. I love the pantas but wanted something fun so I got some fur andmade a little fuzzy bear panta for me Smiley. It was fast and easy to make (just made it on the fly) In this pict I have it tied behind my pigtails but if I tie it under my chin it actually becomes earwarmers as well (wasn't planning on that but I was happy)

This is adorable! I have been planning on making a beary hood for my nephew, but I think this is an even better idea! And now I want a white one for me... Great job.

Thanks for all the kind words. I guess I will try to explain how I did it (I didn't take picts for a tut (i cant work like that Tongue)

Anyhow I just cut a rectangle out of the fur (about the size I wanted when it is folded in 1/2)

I then folded the material in 1/2 and placed it on my head and marked where I wanted to place the ears.

I then made little slits in the fur so that I would be able to inset a ear in each (make it kinda smaller then the ear base that you think you are going to make. And set is aside.

Take some more of the fabric and put two pieces of the fur (fuzzy side together) you can either now draw or free sew the ears (just make 1/2 circles) in whatever size suites you (leave the flat end or bottom of the ear unsewen)

Flip the ears right side out and contort them however suits you. Stick them in one of the wholes you had cut and then sew them in (just a flat seam works fine) but make sure you sew a bit further out then the ear and whole so you dint have any holes when your done.

Do the same for the other ear.

Now turn the rectangle right sides together  and you are going to sew the long seam (but keep about 3 inches in the middle unsewen...this way you can finish it nice and neat)

Just a note...the bottom seam will be in the middle bottom of the panta so keep that in mind.

Now cut two pieces of ribbon however long you like for the ties.

You are going to pull the end of the panta through that little 3 inch gap you left. get it all flattened out how ever you need to and place the ribbon in there so that when you sew the seam it will stick out on the finished end. (you can either sew straight across or you can do a curved end like I did...again you can draw or just freehand it)

Pull that end out of the 3 inch gap and do the other side just the same way.

Now that you are done your panta should be all flattened out (don't forget to trim the ends for a nice neat look (fur can get bulky).

The final step is to get the little 3 inch section and tuck in the raw edges and sew a med size zig zag on it so everything is closed up nice and neat (the zig zag will get lost in the fur Smiley )

I hope that helped those of you who wanted to make one Smiley
