Thanks for the inspiration! I took your idea and modified it a bit and made it look more like the '90s Turtle cartoon. :) My first go at making a hat—thanks for the Instructable!

I love it! Folding the top and bottom edges of the mask over sure gives it a nice finish. Great job, it looks awesome!

Awesome! Thank you!! Wish I could afford to download the pattern, but lost my job so will have to see if I can do without it...kids will LOVE it! Merry Christmas:)

It's not too hard to do without it! And if you aren't confident with your own pattern, sew a simple hat with a cheaper cotton fabric first, so you know what you need to adjust on your pattern before you use the fleece :)
I'd love to see pictures when you're done! Thanks and Merry Christmas!!

LOVE it. I think I'm going to have to make one for sure. I'm also getting ideas how to make other characters using your guide as a stepping block. Thanks for sharing this idea. COWABUNGA!

I've made around five different hats using the same base. (Animals, characters, just 'normal' hats, etc.) (That's why you want to save the patterns you use!!)

It's just so hard to explain it again and again in an instructible. XD Otherwise I'd make them all into ibles.

SOOOOOOOO want to make one for my husband! Maybe withought the braids.....
pie popper (author)  Natasha Dee4 years ago
You can just get like a two inch by 14 in piece of fleece, sew it together on one side, turn it right side out and tie a knot at the end. It's like the same thing but just green strings, no braids. :)

so I love this hat....lol how much fleece do you think I need??
pie popper (author)  Chhany4 years ago
You shouldn't need too much, I've fit two hats in half a yard easily... I would get half a yard...you can always make another :)

My son's bike helmet, the cover (Hot Wheels) just came off. This would be great as a replacement cover for the helmet.

Pretty cool. Looks great. But I don't think putting eyes on my head helps my image. =P You pull it off nicely, though.

Once I learn how to sew, do some basic projects, I'll then move on to this to further the skill. haha.
