This post will show you how to make the hat. The pattern I used is this: http://archives.frederatorblogs.com/adventure_time/files/2010/03/finn-hat.pdf

Print out the pattern and modify it (the ears for Finn is 3.5 inches tall and 3 inches wide).
Pin the pattern to your folded fabric where your head piece will be pinned and cut on the fold as seen in the picture.
These measurements are the ones I used and it’s about a size small in hats. If you have a larger head, go ahead and add an inch or two.
The ears will have to be traced twice giving you a total of 4 ear pieces.

After cutting, leaving a 1 cm seam allowance, it’ll look like this. http://imgur.com/cEeSc,u4zh6,kBrTG,jQAIT,4Q4ji,XDoSV,oYxjW,aosx4,Q0ZXi#5
You”ll get one head piece, 2 circle pieces, and 4 ear pieces. If you want to line the hat, cut out another head piece.

Pin your head piece right sides together and sew a straight stitch along the yellow dashes.

Pin your circle piece to the  top right sides together and sew a straight stitch along the yellow dashes.

After all that sewing it’ll look like this. http://imgur.com/cEeSc,u4zh6,kBrTG,jQAIT,4Q4ji,XDoSV,oYxjW,aosx4,Q0ZXi#8

Remember what you did with the backpack straps? Cutting slits and sewing a straight stitch along the back? You’ll be doing the same with the ears to the right side of the hat. Go ahead and stuff your ears with cotton or excess fabric and wires if you’d like them to stand before sewing them on. You will end up with this. http://imgur.com/cEeSc,u4zh6,kBrTG,jQAIT,4Q4ji,XDoSV,oYxjW,aosx4,Q0ZXi#0

If you are happy with it, you’re finished! If you want to line it continue reading.

4. You will need another head piece and a circle for the lining (you already have a circle. if you don’t have another head piece, go ahead and cut one out (remember to cut it on the fold!). All you have to do is repeat steps 2 and 3.

Flip your first hat inside out (the one with the ears) where the ears are on the inside and pin your two hats right sides together (shove your second hat right side into your ear hat).
Sew a straight stitch along the yellow dashes leaving a 4 to 5 inch hole to flip the hat inside out.

You will end up with this by now. http://imgur.com/cEeSc,u4zh6,kBrTG,jQAIT,4Q4ji,XDoSV,oYxjW,aosx4,Q0ZXi#2

Hand sew the hole closed.
