So for a personal costume I'm delving into the world of itty bitty top hats.
I don't think I'm doing too poorly, though! I remain hopeful!

Anyone else successfully made these before? Any advice?

also, check out my hats here; right here. they're all finished now biggrin

I'd love any feedback!

I'm a hat newb too, and I think your hats are darling! I especially like the teal hat with the black lace and feathers as trim. So pretty!

And I'm impressed that you're making your own hat bases! You're a few steps ahead of me...I just go into the doll-accessory department at Hobby Lobby, buy blank doll hats, and decorate them however I want. I'm thinking about making my own hats from scratch, though, so I can choose whatever colors I want and I'm not limited to the colors and shapes that the store has. 3nodding

Thank you so much biggrin that's my favourite one as well, I love the bright colours. emotion_bigheart

I actually never considered buying premade hats to decorate, lol. These are for costumes, so I"m not sure if doll hats would be the right size anyways.

It's a lot of fun making them from scratch, though I need to learn my way around the hot glue gun a little better, haha, I keep burning myself. :T I'll post some more photos soon, I've almost perfected them! Glue doesn't pop over the top of the hat anymore! So proud!

I have no advice that would be useful but I wanted to say, these are really cute. 0; That's a neat idea. And unique.

These are awesome. Seriously amazing. If money weren't so tight, I'd be all over those hats.

I love tiny top has and yours are SO cute! They have a different kind of style to them than the standard burlesque-ish ones.
When I have the extra cash to spare, I think I'll be needing one!
