Bear: Tutorial and Pattern

Tutorial: Ribbon Pinecone Ornament. Ribbon Pinecone Ornament Tutorial by Jenna . Ornaments for any occasion – try fall colors for Halloween or red and green for Christmas. A no sew project suitable for most age groups (young children might need supervision with pins though). What you’ll need: * 3 yards of 7/8 inch wide ribbon (for points) (I used 1 yard each of 3 different shades of brown, 2 grosgrain ribbons and 1 sateen for variety). * 20 or so inches of ¼ inch wide ribbon (for hanger) * 3-inch foam egg * 150-200 straight pins (preferably flat-headed, sometimes called sequin pins) Instructions: * Cut your ribbon into 1¾ inch long pieces. . * Starting at narrow end of egg, pin a triangle point end down (folded side to the egg) and place one pin in each top corner. . * When you get to the top, fold the triangles a little more narrow (just overlap the corners a bit when folding them down) so that they are a bit smaller and the pins show less. About the maker: Jenna Z. lives in the Midwest with her husband, a cat and a corgi.

With a hefty price of 74 dollars (on that site), I figured I could do one better and make my own for a fraction of the price. 40 dollars of fleece later, me and my other friend Evan set out about making our own Charmander and Meowth costume. However, I didn't document the making of those costumes. It didn't cross my mind until we wore them to our band's first performance and after the show nearly every person we talked to asked me where I got those.

That's is what this Instructable will cover. These costumes aren't supposed to be an exact "spot on" copy of the character you are choosing. Also, I encourage you read through the entire thing before you get too exited and start crafting your own. Strawberry Pillows.
