That's gorgeous!
I just made a top hat but it's nowhere near as fabulously decorated as yours.
I'm very tempted to make a lacy one now  Smiley

think i could use this tutorial for a regular sized top hat?
i need to make one for a friend of mine before he goes to Europe but I'm lacking in funds....and i dint really know what material to use.

For a regular size top hat you could use the stiff felt that i use for my mini hats but I would recommend this link and do a "real" felted hat (yes the process is messy and takes at least 2-3 days, but it is much better quality and will hold up to both travel and scurtinizing eyes (as it will be much larger and flaw will be more evident)). Here is the link:  http://www.costumes.org/advice/costcraftsmanual/tmpjk10.htm
The woman who runs the costumes.org website is super nice I took classes from her back in 2001-2003. This tute was done during one of my costuming classes at the University Of Alaska, It is really easy once you get your form made. And once you have a good form you can make hats over and over! Good luck!

Thank you for your kind words.

I love making the lacy hats for my DD, although she has a habit of bending and breaking the headbands i attach them to... Roll Eyes Undecided (she is only 2 and doesn't understand that things only bend so far before breaking)

Good luck with you future hats and please feel free to post pictures in this thread if you like or post a link to a different hat thread! Good luck!

Very cute!  I think I will have to join the "I'm stealin' this" crowd.   Wink  We have family reading night at my dd's school and it's always on Dr. Seuss's birthday - so of course the thing is always a hat based on a Dr. Seuss book.  Just think of the possibilities....  I can't wait to start on this!!   Smiley

Please "steal" away! Please post a pic of your results!! I would love to see a Seuss inspired hat!!
