The two black hats were made using a free animal bonnet pattern. I made both the cat hat which my son thinks is a bat and the bunny hat which he thinks is a dog. I’m glad the hats can be different animals. It’s great for dressing up. I didn’t use any interfacing but instead used fusible fleece and all the pieces to make them soft. It makes the hats warmer which isn’t great for summer, but it’s nice for colder Spring days and playing dress up inside.
I used the animal bonnet as a starting point and altered the pattern to make a white helmet. My son loves pretending to go to space so it’s a very loose interpretation of an astronaut helmet. I used some remnant white vinyl, the rest of the black metallic fabric, and some remnant white metallic silver dotted quilting cotton. I was going for metallic to look like metal or like space and starts. When I finished he ran into is tent which he pretends is his spaceship and started his countdown to blast off. I’m guessing that’s a sign that he likes it!
