I was totally inspired by the ant hat here: https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=261042.0, so I set out to make my own. I can't crochet, so I figured I'd construct one from old T-Shirts. I used this tutorial for the basic hat shape: http://cristophine.deviantart.com/art/Aviator-Cap-Tutorial-84150949

I really love it! Especially when I think how much I cursed the darn thing while making it. I think I had to undo more than half of the seams. Stretchy fabric is also really horrible to sew... bah.

Here's a picture:

Now for the antlers. I wanted to cover the pipe cleaners with fabric, but I'm afraid it would make them floppy. I haven't made a lining for the hat yet; maybe sewing them really tight to the lining would make them stand up better?

That's so cute!!

If pipecleaners aren't strong enough what about wire from an old wire coathanger?  That's what girls tend to use for fancy dress when they make their plaited hair pigtails curl up at either side if you get me?

Great work Shocked)
