Perhaps buy one original and replicate it in the size you want it?

I think army barets will be available in Australia, but if not you could try this webshop http://www.dumpstore.nl/index.php?main_ … anguage=en

Good luck!

Knit or crochet a beret out of 100% wool yarn then wash it in the washing machine until it felts.

I think it would be kind of hard to make it in one piece - any reason why you can't just cut two circles of felt, cut another smaller circle the size to fit the bears head out of the centre of one and then sew both circles together around the outside and turn the seam to the inside and pull it on the bear's head at a jaunty angle. If it is for a larger bear you could sew a narrow band (folded in half) around the head size circle to give a more finished edge. (If it is for a miniature bear this would be harder to do and might add too much bulk).

Hi Debbie,

here's one, it's not in one piece, but looks very easy, you just need to cut it down to suit the bear's head size
