I actually used the pattern to make an outfit for a bear. I didn't have the craft foam for the hat but used felted wool with interfacing and put darts where the v cuts were. It worked great. I cut ear holes for the bear (hats don't work too well for bears without them. I was very pleased with the project.
I didn't make the vest or the sign, but did make the helmet. I'd previously made the firemans helmet and the Motocross helmet. It is so much fun to make a 3D helmet from a flat piece of foam! The instructions are easy to follow and fun to do. I really like these helmets. You should give one a try. They are so fun and easy and so cute.
