custom teddy bear crochet hat progress

If you follow me over on Facebook, then you already know I've been working on some custom baby hats for photo props.  I've done a bunch of these hats here and there, but mostly the munchkin/elf hats you see floating around.

These hats are different for me because a lot of them are character hats - which, until recently, always frighten me because sewing on the parts can often be comparable to light torture. But they were all so cute that I had a hard time deciding which one to start first.

So I chose to make the Hunny Bear bear hat because I thought it would be good practice.  I'm happy to report that I'm almost done - just need to make a little bumble bee to put on his head:

I took a photo before adding his face, and you can see that it would be a cute hat even if it's just plain:

I'm pretty much free-forming the whole thing, but let me know if you'd like a pattern.  I'll add it to my ever-growing list of patterns to write someday when I finally have my MBA and 20 extra hours in my week :)  That day will be glorious!
