For my hats I use SnappyTots Soldier Beanie pattern. In this pattern you do not join at the end of the rows, but I have. It just depends on what I'm using it for. You can use any good basic hat pattern. There are so many out there I am not going to try to out do all the wonderful designers out there. I used Impeccable / Aqua for the hat and the ears.
I created the pattern for the bulbs, ears, and spots. I am happy to share them here with you, but please note this pattern is copyrighted to Toqua's Crafts and may not be copied for resale in part or whole.

I used Red Heart Soft / Deep Sea for the bulbs
Small amount of fiberfill for stuffing
Once you have your bulbs created you need to sew them together with the tails you left:
Ears - 2 each
Once you have all the accessories created you need to sew them on. The very first things I sewed onto the hat were the eyes. I cut the eyes out of felt and sewed them on with my sewing machine. You can, however sew them by hand.
I cut out what I thought resembled the eyes from paper, I then traced them onto felt of either red or white with my Sharpie. Please note: If you use a Sharpie you need to be sure to get all of the black cut off
In this bottom picture you will see where I cut out the teeth. I would highly recommend that you add more sewing room on the longest edge, like this:
That way you have the 'tag' to attach to the hat when you are sewing them onto the hat.
The second items I sewed onto the hat were the teeth.
If you will look close at the tooth that is on the left of the picture above it isn't on straight (I didn't have enough of a tag). I took it apart and resewed it.
I used this picture
to help with placement. If you will notice the bulbs are actually on the character's back, so they need to go behind the ears, and on the back of the hat. You can also use these photos to help you place the spots (the smallest spot I just sewed directly onto the hat), and the ears.
Here is the new owner of this Bulbasaur hat. Do you think he's happy about his new treasure? Just look at that face!
|Thank you Clarissa for allowing me to use these photos!|
How many character hats have you made? Have you ever considered creating your own pattern for something new?
