Mini Top Hat Tutorial by fetishfaerie-stock Mini Top Hat Tutorial by fetishfaerie-stock
I've had a lot of people ask me how I made my last mini top hat... so I spent a few weeks photographing the process (I haven't spent much time on art lately.. darn X-Men Legends!), and tried my best to describe how I put everything together.

Best of luck for anyone who tries their hand at it - it's lots of fun. And if you have any questions, please feel free to ask!

I make so many of these little top hats =) out of fabric, buttons, duct tape and whatever else i can find =) i use soda boxes for the base =) This is really helpful =) the way you attach the fabric to the base  is especially clever =) i love it and the lace ruffles underneath is adorable

I love this tutorial but I have a quick question. How do you keep the velvet from crinkling when you glue it to the larger cardboard, after you glue the height on?
