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!

This is super flipping useful, thank you so much for documenting and posting this tutorial.
I've been looking for a clearly described how to tutorial on making mini top hat for a plush I've been building, but most I've found have been either vague or under photographed with little to no diagrams included.
This is head and shoulders above the rest simply because you got everything down both visually and textually and it is GREAT. <3

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?
