Ponchos and hats - Just for fun



This is where I shall document all the character ponchos and other interesting things I make. The majority of such things will be made out of fleece~

Heartless - Kingdom Hearts (COMPLETE)
I made this randomly, and wore it to the London MCM Expo in October 2009. Using a hat and cape I made for Skitty as a guide, I made this out of black fleece. The antenna are black fleece shapes, half stuffed in an attempt to make them stick up. The eyes are yellow felt

Takuto (cat form) - FullMoon wo Sagashite (COMPLETE)
I love Full Moon, and because I was buying cream fleece anyway, I decided to buy a load extra to make a Takuto poncho. I will use red velvet to make the ribbon, and have a medium cat-bell for the collar (I hope to find a bigger bell at some point). The eyes will be black fleece.
EDIT: Its done! The bell is too small though, so I need to get a bigger one. The neckline is really small due to how I've done the ribbon, so it only just goes over my head! I don't care though~ it's turned out much better then I thought it would and I love it ^^ Pictures soon!

Meroko (rabbit form) - FullMoon wo Sagashite (COMPLETE)
I have a load of pink fleece spare from Skitty, and so I hope to make a Meroko poncho at some point soon. the eyes will be felt, and I will buy a ribbon when I start to make it.
The eyes look really judging! I'm really proud that I've made the ears stand up without using wire or fancy techniques: I just slightly stuffed the ears and sewed them onto the hood. I lke the little wings, even if they aren't entirely accurate~

Snorlax (COMPLETE)
I'm making a Snorlax fleece hat at the request of a friend who was quite taken with my Skitty hat. I may make an eye-mask to go with it~ I will use blue and cream fleece to make this, and embroider some sleepy eyes.
Not doing the eye-mask I've decided, but I like the way this turned out so much, I'm making one for myself!

Dratini (COMPLETE)
A present for Luminescence <3 This was made entirle from pale blue and white fleece. The nose and forehead dot are gathered ovals of fleece and stuffed. The ear-wings are fleece shapes with a section stuffed to give detail and stuff XD
Eyes are white and black felt shaped sewn together and coloured with Letraset markers.

Charmander (COMPLETE)
I love this hat, as it was really quick and easy to make. It's a gift for Mungojerrie :) The eyes were done in the same way as on the other hats, just coloured with turqoise and green. Used a burnt-orange colour fleece, which is also used for Raichu.

Made with Royal blue, light blue and white fleece. The beak is yellow felt and the eyes are white and black felt which are coloured with Letraset markers.

Seemed to be really easy at first. Made a basic hat, then gathered sections at the bottom to make it 'wibbly', then cut ditto shapes to cover the base hat with ^^ The face was really hard to make vacant, and ened up embroidering the mouth. Took HOURS man!

Magnemite (COMPLETE)
Oh my god, I'm not going to make another one of these EVER. As much as I love it, it's taking too long and there's a lot of fiddly bits that I keep screwing up XD Giant magnets on a hat are cool though. Finally finished, and I like the top screw xD It actually stands up!

I forgot to add this o.o BUT YES I found a huge stash of brown fleece so decided to get started on making an eevee hat.
The ears where fun c: as with Meroko, I slightly stuffed them to support them 8D They waggle when I shake my head *squee*

I'm so happy with this so far: huge squishy ears, and a gold velvet coin ^^ I almsot dont want to give it away!
The wiskers are stuffed tubes of fleece, and the eyes are felt with embroidered pupils.

Voltorb/Electrode (COMPLETE)
My first attempt at a reversible hat. Using red and white fleece, one side will be Voltorb, and the other will be Electrode.
This went better than I thought it would, but I'm not entirly happy with the eyes o.O
