It is a decorated Felt Top hat. I saw these at Joanns for $20 and it was onsale for $10, however I think my total cost would be about $5, I already had most of the supplies here in my stash. The hat I will be making tomorrow will be different.
So I will be making this on my ustream show tomorrow Saturday October 6th at 1pm central time on my channel. http://www.ustream.tv/channel/all-things-creative1
Here is a list of materials you will need
Felt- any color or pattern
Trim- ribbon, sequins, beads ect ect ect, possibilities are endless)
Feathers any feathers will work.
Embellishment - I used some of the rhinestone picks from the bridal section here. I will also make some felt flowers.
Hot Glue Gun and sticks
Circle dies and or template- I used Spellbinders S4-114 I also cut a template about 4 1/2" circle for my brim.
Stuffing_ I will just use a plastic bag from walmart to stuff it
Headband or a spring clip
Optional - cereal box weight chipboard to keep the brim sturdy, can cut to size of brim. Will explain in the ustream.
If YOu want to precut your felt for the hat here is what I used.
1- 3"x9" strip of felt
1 - 3 3/4" circle largest in the die set
1- 3 1/4" circle 2nd largest in the set
1 4 1/2" circle, I cut this myself cause I didn't have a die for it
