Your designs are beautiful and you improved so much over the gallery :3 Could you share some tips with me? I also want to move on from plushies to hats.

Aw, thank you so much!
I'd be happy to help! Is there anything in particular you had in mind? :)

Not really, since I haven't made any yet I don't know what can go wrong ^^' Well, what about the material used for your long-eared hats?

I use fleece for the main part of the hat, and usually cotton or flannel for small details :)
Fleece is a really good beginner fabric, so if you give hats a try I think they'll be pretty fool-proof :D

Ye, but there are so many different types of fleece. For example my arctic steggy is made out of fleece I got at a local store, but it doesn't look like the one you used on your hats.

It seems every store likes to have their own brand name of fleece, so sometimes it'll be called 'polar,' 'glacier,' or 'blizzard'

But anti-pill fleece is good too -- that usually won't have a special name :) No matter what I get, I like to make sure it has a smooth surface and about a medium-weight thickness. And if you grab a section and stretch it, the section stretches at least 20% longer than what you started with.

Lol, I actually found the fleece I usually see on plushies at a local store (5euro for 1mx1.5m). Time to make a hat.

Btw do you develop your own patterns with trial and error or do you use some sort of software?

It's a little bit of both :D I draw out the patterns on Adobe Illustrator and make prototypes from the printouts. Then if I need to go back and make changes it's easy to make duplicates and be more precise.
