What you need...

^*^ Stiff Craft Felt
^*^ Scissors
^*^ Needle and Thread
^*^ Gluegun with glue
^*^ Ruler
^*^ Your choice of decorations

Step 1
Cutting out you pieces. Cut A doughnut shape 3-3/4" wide with a 2-1/4" hole (save this cutout it will become the top of your hat) Cut a strip of felt 2-1/4" wide by 6" long (note strip in photo was later trimmed to this measurement).



Step 2
Begin sewing the hole cutout to the strip. This will form the top and sides of your hat. Sew all the way around the top.





Step 3
After sewing all the way around the top you should be left with a tail DO NOT CUT THE TAIL (you will need the extra to avoid a gap later). Now turn the upper part of you hat right side out.



Step 4
Place the upper part of your hat into the doughnut or brim of the hat and begin sewing the two together.DO NOT SEW THE TAIL TO THE BRIM.



Step 5
When you have finished sewing the two together you will have what looks like this...



Now trim the tail to about 1/4"-1/2" long and glue down to cover you seam.

Step 6
Your basic hat is now complete all that is left is to decorate! Enjoy!

You can also get doll-sized top hats and hot glue things on them.

Ghost I can really see you wearing one of those and looking great in it!

I unfortunately look like Boy George on a very bad day if I even attempt to wear a hat

I just did a google search for "doll hats" or "doll top hats." They'll generally be black so if you want them another color you can cover them like shown in Vampira's post.

GR, you can usually find dolls top hats at craft and hobby stores in the asile where they have teddy bears and doll parts.


And this tutorial is pretty awesome. My friend Amanda is always making mini top hats in pretty much the way you described, and they always come out looking so wonderfully!

That is so adorable!

What's really great too is that they look so fabulous and cost so little that you could easily have one for every outfit and special occasion! They would make very NICE custom gifts too! Thanks Vampira!

I had meant to post this a long time ago....

I made hats for my troupe for our Gothic Bellydance program that we performed in February. I wish I had a closeup of each hat but I don't yet, so I'll try to zoom in on the pic.

We are performing the program again in May and we have some new members so I will be making a couple more hats! Woo!

(Mine is the purple one)

Oh btw, I got the hat forms from:

I used the 5 inch top hats but you could experiment with different sizes.
