Ok, So I've really had a hankerin' to make my self a hat! I worked ten hours straight on this thing and now all of my friends want one too! I think it turned out pretty flippin awesome!
I first took  some blue green tule and cut out 20 two inch circles and 15 one and a half inch circles. Then I sewed all of them around there edges as if I were making yoyo' After I was done doing that I poofed them out to make them into tear drop shapes.

For the hat it's self I glued two pieces of card stock together and then I cut and molded them into a tear drop shap. I then covered both sides with a piece of felt. Then I glued on a strip of cloth for edging and sewed it into the felt. I then took the tulle tear drops and sewed them onto the felt in ascending order Using the biggest at the top and smaller ones at the bottom.

At the top of the tear drop shape hat I  made a felt flower by cutting out a one and a half inch flower and a one inch flower out of felt. I then blanket stitched sequins on the edges of both. Then I sewed the small one on top of the other and then sewed jewel on top of that. I then glued it on the hat.

I then glued a clip on the underside of it.

The finished product! Yay, Go me!

Thanks for Looking! Muah! Kiss

Can you describe how you made it & what materials you used? It's hard to tell just looking at the pic. Thanks.
