Just wanted to show off my daughter's newest creation...a Stylish Top Hat!!



She has been wanting one of her very own and when she found out how much a full sized one would cost, she decided to make her own.  With all the compliments she has been receiving on it, she is wondering if she could make and sell these to earn some money. 

What do you think?  How much would you pay for a custom made miniature top hat?  The base of the hat is approximately 6" and it stands about 7" high.

wow I love it!

I would pay 40 or so if I had some extra money but then again I'm cheap and don't have money  Roll Eyes I can picture a whole line of these hats on the right website bringing closer to a hundred or so.

Awsome job!Very Goth!

Would love to see a picture with someone wearing it  Grin

Thanks!  She has already made several more but she gave them to friends for graduation gifts before I could take any pictures!

Thank you.

She has used craft foam to construct the hats.  For the one in the picture, she made ribbons out of the left-over material from her dress.  The other hats she has made, she used ribbons and lace.  She made one that she called "Support Gay Rights" hat with rainbow ribbons but since we didn't have rainbow thread, she colored the white thread with markers to match the ribbon.
