Black felt top hat
I made this hat for a friend. It was my first attempt and hit a few bumps along the way, but got there in the end. Just be sure to take into account the thickness of your material when taking head measurements and add this to you measurements for the crown.
Hope my instructions are clear enough!

Measure the circumference of your head (60cm). Cut a length of poster board using this measurement and 16cm in height. Join the ends and stick with tape. This is the crown of your hat.
For the tip of your hat cut out a circle of cardboard slightly larger than the circumference of the crown (depending on how much of a curve you want on the top of your hat). I used a plate that was approx. 2 cm wider in radius than the crown.
Tape the tip to the crown and then secure with hot glue.
