Here are some new photos of the Fox Hat with Long Ear Tips. These also come in the same 3 color combos as the short tips. These have a more realistic shape to the ear tip. Pictures are larger on Etsy if you want to see them better. This is the last batch of the orange foxes. I am not sure which ear tip style I like better. I like the shorts because it reminds me of cartoons but I love this one also because it is much more realistic. Which do you prefer?
**Hats do not cover eyes. The model head is made smaller than the average human head. This causes the hat to cover the eyes and parts of the face that it will not on a person. Patterned ears and color combinations can be applied to any style of hat, not just the cat ones. Contact me if you would like to commission one.**
Today in the cat hat stream we have ablack and gray cat hat with a lovely print of branches with circle leaves in multiple shades of gray on a black background. Comes with a gray brim to pull out the gray color within the ears.
I really like the subtlety of this print. The grays on a black means they do not stand out too much. Also the multiple shades of gray means you can see the branches and leaves overlaping each other. I really like it. It might not be the most eye catching print but sometimes subtle is better.
Continuing the break in Halloween goodies we have some Sunny Cat Hats. These are all in a series of bright and sunny colors to match the inner ear patterns. Perfect for battling the cold and dreary fall and winter weather.
I posted these up on Tumblr a few days ago and completely forgot to post them on here. Oops. Sorry about that. I guess these are almost Halloweeny because of all the orange...but they weren't really meant to for that. Meh, I still like them. Hope you do too.
Any of the patterns in the ears really stand out to you?
This hat wins the "Most failed attempts before succeeding" award. It took me awhile to get this right. But I finally did. This next bit is going to be in bold so hopefully people won't ask or miss it.
There is NO wire in the ears, they stand up on their own and do NOT easy fall down
The ears do fall down with sharp head movements, like a head banging movement. I found that during my daily activities they did not fall at all. Walking around, bending over, rushing somewhere, ect. The ears stayed up without problem.
The last of my Halloween hats, a Candy Corn Cat Hat. (I am loving the alliteration.) The pictures could be better...I was in a bit of a rush to get them before the sun went down. They are okay but meh, I am not very happy with them.
Anywho, not much to say besides I really wanted to make this and I am glad I had time to. I think it is fun and I hope you do to.

The Hat: A lucky find in one of the shops on board The Queen Mary (as in the cruise-ship-turned-hotel). It's one of those trendy "Fedora" (although it is in fact a Trilby, which is a type of Fedora) hats.
The pins: Craft foam, a button, and paint.
The Feather: Another lucky find at a local Micheal's craft store. The feather was already dyed as you see it (it came in a pack with other feathers tipped in different colors)--all I did was trim it to the shape I wanted.
Since I've gotten the hang of working with felt, I've been making quite a lot of cakes. I also have some keychain-sized ones that I'm working on, but for now: bon appetit with this slice of mocha cake.
Ingredients: Felt, synthetic stuffing and embroidery thread. All sewn by hand, including the coffee bean-detail.
