I’ve got a new pattern that I’ve recently added to my Etsy shop 😀
I’ve been in a witchy mood ever since the Hogwarts House Plush Pattern I released back in July, so I thought for the next leg of my Halloween projects I wanted to make a witch hat!
A classic cone style hat is a really fun simple project that you can find for free many places, so of course I had to take it a step further! I designed two fun crown shapes in addition to the basic cone. And of course knowing my style I just had to put animal ears on them too <3
The pattern includes templates to make cat, unicorn, or rabbit ears — and you can decorate them with horns, antlers, wings, and flowers too. To finish it off, you can make a cute accent band (complete with slots to hold your potion vials!) and a bow.
It has sizes for heads from 13” to 25” so it can be made for both babies and adults. The instructions also come with tips about different interfacing to use so you can make a hat that’s super crisp and sturdy or one that’s more cozy and floppy.
Though it’s completely optional, it felt too good to pass up a hat with a spooky face too. So applique templates for this creepy grinning face and an evil eye are also in there as well <3 The embroidery is also available separately, which comes in 7 different sizes so it would suit lots of other spooky projects besides the hat!
To celebrate its launch, the pattern will be 30% off for the first weekend, and the embroidery files will be 50% off! I hope you’ll give it a look! And if you snagged a copy, I hope you enjoy it!

aww the hats are so cute!😍 i’ve been wondering what to be for halloween well now i’ve found it!😊also what would you say the difficulty of the project is?
Thank you so much! I’d say it suits a confident beginner 😀 I rated it a 3-4 out of 10 depending if you add a lot of extra decorations to the hat or if you use foam interfacing ♥
Love this! I would love to make the galaxy one for myself! Where did you find that fabric?! I wants it! My precious.
Thank you so much! I had it custom printed from Spoonflower 😀
Late to the party! Just bought this on Etsy – do you have any tips for making a well-defined twist to the horn?
If you mean the unicorn horn, that’s made by wrapping the thread around the horn and pulling it tight 🙂 Another technique I like (but takes more time) is to sew a short gathering stitch in a spiral around the horn. This is used in my Narwhal pattern for example: https://cholyknight.com/2017/07/07/narwhal-plush/. This will really tighten up the horn and make the spirals look very defined.
