Make your own lolita hat! I wanted one of these for a little while...but I am broke. I saw a YouTube video on making them, and changed some parts to my own ideas!

    Also, make sure you cut out a piece of fabric (the same kind as the rest) to the same size and shape of your circle.

    Do the same thing with the circle.

    To cover up any paper still showing...glue the cirle piece of fabric (FACE UP SO THE PRETTY SIDE IS VISABLE) onto the back of the paper circle.

    Now...cut off the edges of the fabric circle that stick out and show the under side of the fabric. (You want your hat to look nice and neat)

    Glue the tube onto the cirle with the tucked in edges of the tube on the bottom. I like to have the fabric circle on the bottom of the hat.

    This step can be done now or done as the last step (after you attach the headband).
    Just rap the ribbon around the hat and tie a bow.

    Now attach the headband by gluing it to the bottom of the hat.
    You may have to bend the rim of the hat dowm a bit and attach it to the headband to keep the hat sturdily on the headband. IF YOU HAVE ALREADY PUT THE RIBBON ON...MAKE SURE IT IS FACING THE WAY YOU WANT!!
