Yay! A really fun project today: Bergamot Bunny baseball cap make over! Argh so fricking cute, I want to wear it all the time! I previously made this cap over but I haven’t worn it in ages so it was time for another rethink: answer? Bergamot ears!
For this tutorial you will need:
Draw the Bergamot ear shape on to a piece of cardboard.
Cut them out!
Cut a rectangle of the white fabric big enough to cover the ear on both sides. I’m using some fluffy polar fleece.
Roughly draw the shape onto the fabric and draw where the heart will go on the ear as well.
Cut the extra off around the edges.
I decided to needle felt the pink heart in place but you can just use a piece of felt and stitch it on depending on which materials you have on hand.
Place the cardboard inside and the fold the fabric in half around it. Repeat for the other ear as well.
Now stitch or hot glue the fabric onto the cardboard so it covers it nicely and looks neat.
Now make a little lace bow as well. You can make the bow out of lace or ribbon depending on your tastes, it just needs to be as wide as both the ears because we will use it to hide the base later.
Now on your cap, use an unpicker to open a seam at the top.
Poke the ears through the hole and either stitch or hot glue them in place. Make sure you stitch or glue the seam on either side of the ears too otherwise it will unravel later.
Hot glue or stitch the ears together so they won’t flop around.
Lastly, glue the bow at the base of the ears to hide the seam.
Really you could do this with just about any kind of hat as long as you could poke a hole in a seam!
Only thing to do now is enjoy it!
I know what I’ll be wearing all the time now! What do you guys think??
