This hat was made with the kind of simplicity that makes the head reel. Julia explains the utter ease of her project:
“Well all I did to make the hat was take a teddy bear that had a head about the size of mine. The bear was about 2 1/2 feet tall. I cut the seam around the neck and cinched the sides because that bear had some big cheeks.
Next I just cut the face out and sewed some ribbon onto the
inside of the ear flaps so I could tie it up. [To finish] the inside, I took a smallish ski/skull hat and sewed it in with just a few points on the top and sides. Super simple, almost ridiculously so...”
And pure genius. I am now looking for a blond, fuzzy teddy probably around 4 feet tall- if anyone finds one let me know. Or for that matter, a settled blond fuzzy bear in his mid thirties, maybe taller than 4 feet.
