Please help me:
a) procure 2-5 pith helmets (natural straw type), inexpensively;
b) procure material to make matching cat ears;
c) add cat ears to pith helmets, in "airplane ears" or "listening behind" position, because cat safari is serious business.
Found $15/helmet source for (a), but wonder if there's a less expensive way. For (b), I have no real clue - what should I even buy? Very thin chair caning supplies? Tiny willow branches from a nearby tree? Any ideas? [more inside]

Wanted: tips or detailed instructions for making a belt (clothing) out of fabric, iron-on "waist maker" tape, needle, thread, "belting" strap material, and (probably) some hooks. I'm not 100% sure how to fold/sew the fabric around the tape, especially the ends. No luck with Google, and the package instructions are sparse. [more inside]
