Use your string to measure Teddy's head. Wrap around the crown of his head. Add an extra inch or two and snip.
Take that string and lay across your duct tape fabric. My string measured out at about 9 1/2 inches, so I will add an extra 1/2 inch and cut at the 10 inch mark. If you want to add an extra strip of color or like I did, take a different color piece of duct tape, trim to 10 inches and tear it in half. Apply that piece to the bottom of your main base color.
Roll your fabric into a tube. Cut another piece of duct tape about 1/2 inch thick and place on the inside of the duct tape fabric. Bring back your little teddy to help in making a nice snug fit around his head.
I am using a pre-made tassel for the top of his hat. In order to attach that tassel I took a small piece of main color duct tape and attached it to the inside of the hat along the seam.
Once the tassel is attached, fold the top of the tub onto itself, and seal with tiny strips of main color duct tape. (Tip: I pre-made these in advance and placed on parchment paper so I can have nice and clean lines when cut down to size with scissors) Take the tape and attach at an angle on either side of the tassel.
You want to make the tape nice and tight so the hat cinches at the top. Now take the side and pooch it in with your finger.
Pooch it in on either side as well and secure with your small duct tape strips.
Do the same thing on the other side, pulling in as you go.
Lastly, you want to fold up the bottom half. Now onto the scarf...
Use your string as your measurement tool and cut the duct tape at desired length.
Create a fold over strip with your duct tape. Add extra tape if you want to make the scarf a bit thicker. Trim any excess.
To make its edge, I used matching tape from the hat trim.
Fold over onto itself, and trim any excess white.
Lastly, create a fringe so it looks just like a real scarf. You're all done!
Now teddy is all ready for the cold! Top with a hat and wrap around the scarf and he's ready to go play outside.
