It was such an awesome idea that I had to have a go myself!!
Unfortunately the one I made is just a little too small for my head, even though I tried to make it bigger. I'm going to make another and gift this one to a friend :D
Right now I'm half way done with the first of two identical shark-hats for my two daughters (1,5 and almost 3 years old). Hope they like the hats as much as I do!

Great! I can't wait to see pictures. :) I'm sure they'll love em!
First one is ready and shown by my daughter:

...And de second one is finished too!
Given that it's finally winter over here, we took the opportunity of the snow to give the hats a good "field test". They passed, hands down.
Here a picture of both sharks, eating the ladies, while I am trying not to look like I am posing for the camera :p

They look awesome! I think I actually like it better how you made it with dark blue... Well enjoy the hats and your patch! :)
Thanks, actually the bluish grey was because "real" grey was not available but it looks very neat indeed!
The kids love 'em, too, so actually thank YOU for the marvellous design and the idea!
D: This is amazing!
I'm going to have to make a few and wear them as though they're eating each other.

This has to be the coolest hat I've ever seen, thank you very much for this tutorial. My kids will love it. Have to make mine first though.
pie popper (author)  mri19722 years ago
Thanks! And it is much funner to be wearing a hat while making more. ;)
I so need to make one of these for my 4 year old.

Though I'll have to give it a second dorsal fin. First thing he said when he saw it was "It only has one dorsal fin!" Personally I think what it lacks in anatomical correctness it more than makes up for in cuteness, but 4 year olds can be fiddly that way.
pie popper (author)  baqaqi2 years ago
He's 4? haha that's hilarious! I thought about doing more fins, but I felt it might crowd up the hat too much. And I didn't have enough fleece to do a proper tail, so I just went with the cuter style.
But I would love to see your 2-dorsal fined shark! :P
I want to make this so badly :) awesome :D

Omg, this is so fun :) . Cheers for the 'structable
Cute, cool, creative and practical - it gets my vote! Other riffs on this theme could be crocodile, orca, tiger, piranah, etc.

There are so many possibilities! I think fish are anatomically the easiest though... :) Thank you!

Totally awesome :) I used to wear a cap (when i was a small boy) that had a crocodile on it........this would have made my life complete.........who am i kidding.....I still want one as an adult :)
pie popper (author)  jonnyd552 years ago
some things never grow old :)
This is such an adorable idea! Who doesn't want a shark on their head :)
pie popper (author)  Penolopy Bulnick2 years ago
that is a question I have been pondering for a long time...
Yay! That's the best. I hope lots of people make it and post pictures. :D
