Hello ^^

Well, I'm planning to cosplay Black Mokona from xxxHolic / Tsubasa. I really want to make a Mokona hat with those ears and stuff, but I don't know how to make it (I don't have any sewing experience). So, are there patterns for those ears? Or something XD I can really use some advice from you guys ^^

Thanks!

My friend and I considered finding a hat too. So, if Linal-Chan doesn't need one anymore, I would still appreciate the help. :)

=_= *about to fall asleep forcing herself to make progress on her costumes*

The "pattern"s attached. There's no measurements cause it's a really rough doodle, and since it's a hat, you'd want it fitted to your head, so the width of the entire piece would be the circumfrence of your head. When you cut out the pattern pieces, add a 1/2 inch border of extra fabric attached. The picture only indicates the lines along which you sew.

I used a microfleece with a good bit of stretch, so exact fit wasn't necessary, but if you're using regular fleece, which has little to no stretch, I would recommend making the entire thing about an inch larger than your head.

If you want the ears up permanently, you can add some floral wire inside the ears. I actually wore mines regularily (and had a fun time with all my bio profs wanting to play with it), so wire would have just been problematic.

Thanks so much. My friend and I still need to finish other costumes. I'll let you know when we finish the hat.
