My tablet is stupid and won't zoom properly, would someone please type out what the words are? (Writing this without cat puns was SO difficult.. XD ) I have been hunting for a good hat tutorial and this one looks perfect! I will probably owe you for the rest of my life for this tutorial. XD

idk if you still need it but if not someone else might:

Suppiles: BLue fleece, white craft felt, pencil, paper scissors, fabric scissors, paper, clear ruler, measuring tape, thread, sewing machine
Step 1: measure yo head meats. Mine came out to 22 1/4"
Step 2: Find 1/4 of your head circumferance. Mine is 5 1/2"
Step 3: From the corner of the paper mark is 5 1/2"
Step 4: Measure how low you want the hat, and how high you want it
Step 5: Measure up the low measurement in the center. mark it with your pencil.
Step 6: Make a box! Also mark the center of the top line.
Step 7: Make a curved line down to the vertical line. This will be your center front. Do this for the other line too. This will be your side seam.
Step 8: Cut out the pattern. Flip it. Trace it out. This will be the back of your hat (oops reversed)
Step 9: Measure up the "high" measurement (see step 4) in the center. Mark it.
Step 10: Create a straight line to the the center front.
Step 11: Curve the line to the bottom of the hat. (Forgot to take that picture do not cut it out yet!
Step 12: Place your horns onto the side seam of the fornt. Mark the width of your horns.
Step 13: Cut out the pattern. Place it on the fleece. Cut it out. Clip the fabric where the horns are. IMPORTANT: Do not forget to add 1/4" all the way the way around for team allowance!!!!
Step 14: Sew the center frontes together at 1/4". Repeat for center back. Don't forget to back stitch!
Oh look you hassa front!
Step 15: Pin together front and back at seam. Pin at notched on both sides. And maybe add another to keep the fabric down.
Step 16: Sew to the second pin (forst notch). Do a back stitch clip threads.
Step 17: Start sewing at the third pin over the seam until you get to the fifth pin. Back stitch. Clip threads.
Step 18: Start sewing at sixth pin all the way to the end. Backstitch and clip threads. Both sides should have an opening for the horns.
OMGZ YOU HASSA HAT! Now cut out little white circles for the eye, a larger oval for the nose and glue them on! I top stitched all the seam allowances down. But you don't have to. You can also hem it if you want. I didn't since fleece doesn't fray! O:
End Product! Thanks for viewing my first tutorial! I hope it was helpful!! :33

Currently I am at step 15 and I can not figure out what you would like me to do next, Were we only suppose to cut out two pieces or four?

I was totally confused at that part too! I think it's four separate pieces, because she says in step 14 to sew the fronts together. Since it's plural I assume she means two? So I think it means two back pieces and two front pieces! Hope that helps!

I guess it isn't all to hard. 
But I do have a few questions. Are the horns necessary? My family doesn't know I'm a Homestuck (or about most of my fandoms, for that matter), and I'm not in a hurry to tell them why I have horns on the hat I'm making. I suppose I want to make the hat for a subtle reference and to feel closer to the fandom rather than cosplay.
Also, what do you mean by step four? Is it measuring for the curved part? 
Reply
:iconxkanna:
xKanna Featured By Owner Apr 13, 2014
You can make the patterns the same way and when you sew it you don't stop at the pins for the openings like I did.

Yeah, it is for the curved part.

Can you explain step four in a but more detail please? I understood most...but I'm confused 'low and high'?  I'm sorry for being stupid DX

:iconxkanna:
xKanna Featured By Owner Dec 15, 2013
Uhhh... I can copy/paste?
The measuring is kind of tricky I suppose. Basically, take the head measurement, divide by 4 then mark that line on the paper as a horizontal line. Then measure the distance from the top of your head, to your eyebrows. That will be the distance from the top of the cone shaped piece to the horizontal line. Make sure it's centered. Then the measurement from the top of your head to your hair line would be the distance from the top of the cone measurement, mark that line the same distance as the 4th of the head measurement. Then make a curve from the bottom line the the left side of the hairline line. Then slightly curve that line to the top of the cone mark. do the same for the back. Then for the other piece, you just do the 4th measurement with the top of the cone like you did before, then don't add the hairline measurement. You'll simply curve the front and the back the same. I can't explain it any further than that. >_< Sorry, I'm bad at explaining. ;~;

I found furry tutorials really helped me make the tail, and the paw feet! This tutorial is similar to what I used for the feet. www.youtube.com/watch?v=PowYGG… I don't have any pictures of my feet... ;~; But this is the same method I used if you are interested in that. ^^; Here's a good tutorial for the tail www.youtube.com/watch?v=6suvoM…
