Who said hats with characters were just for little kids?

Step 1: What you Need

Picture of What you Need

Sewing materials (sewing machine, needle, thread, bobbin, scissors, etc.)

-1 yard of fleece (color of your choice)
- jersey knit for the lining (you can use an old t-shirt :D)
- stuffing (for ears--if you want them)
-various other colors of fleece and other embellishments for decorations...
          for example:
pikachu beanie:
          -1 yard yellow fleece
          - scraps of black fleece
          - scraps of red fleece
          - scraps of white fleece

totoro beanie:
           -1 yard gray fleece
           - 1/4 yard white fleece
           - scraps of black fleece
            - black yarn/embroidery thread (for whiskers)
yup. :)

can someone help me out? I don't really understand how I connect the two layers.. The instructions say sew the outside half circle edges, then flip it over and sew around the rim? What does it mean by half circle edges? Sorry if these are stupid questions, but I'm really confused..

Sorry for a 6 month late reply, I havent been on in years (literally :/ )

Lol I wrote this instructable when I was like 14 so I am dying over how I wrote it so unclearly. I understand that you didn't get it, I confused myself reading it 3 years after I made it :P

When you stack the layers, don't flip them yet. In this pic, just stack them they way they are, inside out, and sew along the round edge in the seam allowance. This is optional anyway, just to prevent the lining from flipping out of the hat when you take it off. After you sew along the round edge, flip the first layer of lining around the whole hat so the right side is facing out. I mean, this step isn't really necessary so it's ok.
