Costume party comming up? Use this pattern to make a harlequin's cap in any colour you like. 

It's a bit complicated, but if you follow the instructions closely, you'll do fine!

you'll need:
- the printed pattern
- About half a metre of fabric
- Fusible interfasing (and a flat-iron)
- Some biastape
- Filling
- Bells

Step 1: Once upon a time

First of, print the pattern on 5 A4 sheets.
Some parts were too big too fit on the paper. Fit the parts with matching signs and join them. (Black dot against black dot and flower against flower. Print it out, you'll see.)
Now put them on the fabric and cut them as many times as indicated on the pattern. Add a seam of about 1 cm. Or more if you have really big head :)

In this case I wanted the right and the left sideto be different colours, so instead of folding the fabric I used two different pieces, as you can see on the last picture. That way you don't have to cut twice and they will turn out to be the same size.

This is awesome! My boyfriend and I want to be the Joker and Harley Quinn for Halloween this year, this may come in handy! :)
Good, I thought it would be interesting to Harley Quinn sympathisers :) good luck!
That looks great! Awesome job! <br /> <br />I think that stuff is called bias tape.
Bias tape! thanks, I'll correct that.
