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!

    Cut out (of the paper) a rectangle long enough to rap around its-self.

  3. How to make a top hat. Lolita Top Hat - Step 3 3

    Rap the rectangle into a tube and tape it shut.

  4. How to make a top hat. Lolita Top Hat - Step 4 4

    Place the tube on the paper left over and draw a circle around it for the bottom part of the hat.

  5. How to make a top hat. Lolita Top Hat - Step 5 5

    Cut it out.

  6. How to make a top hat. Lolita Top Hat - Step 6 6

    Next, cut out pieces of fabric to rap around the paper pieces.

  7. How to make a top hat. Lolita Top Hat - Step 7 7

    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.

  8. How to make a top hat. Lolita Top Hat - Step 8 8

    Heat up your glue gun.

  9. How to make a top hat. Lolita Top Hat - Step 9 9

    Put the tube piece of fabric FACE DOWN and put your tube on top of it.

  10. How to make a top hat. Lolita Top Hat - Step 10 10

    Glue the edges of the fabric to THE INSIDE of the tube. When you finish, you may need to touch up the looks of the tube.

  11. How to make a top hat. Lolita Top Hat - Step 11 11

    <<< When you are done...it should look something like this.

  12. How to make a top hat. Lolita Top Hat - Step 12 12

    Do the same thing with the circle.

  13. How to make a top hat. Lolita Top Hat - Step 13 13

    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.

  14. How to make a top hat. Lolita Top Hat - Step 14 14

    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)

  15. How to make a top hat. Lolita Top Hat - Step 15 15

    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.

  16. How to make a top hat. Lolita Top Hat - Step 16 16

    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.

  17. How to make a top hat. Lolita Top Hat - Step 17 17

    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!!
