Miniature Witch Hat Tutorial
The Making of a Witch’s Hat
A beautiful sorceress/witch in need
of a new hat for her “Hot Date”
I will get right to the point with the photos and let them show you the way!
Small Pieces of soft black leather
Thin Cardstock (3 x 5 cards are great)
Tacky Glue, Sharp Scissors, Black Marker
Pattern (found at the end of this tutorial)
This is a tutorial for just the basic hat. Embellishing can be found in another
Tutorial I did here: http://ginabellousdolls.com/victorian-hat-tutorial/
Trim the leather for brim as shown
Leave a small allowance
on bottom edge
Cut paper pattern allowance edge
on side as shown to reveal the leather
underneath. This will make gluing
easier and the seam will lay flat.
If you saw my other hat tutorial,
you know that cutting while it is still
damp seals the edges of the brim
with the cardstock in between.
Here is a picture showing how to cut away one side of the leather along the seam allowance. This will make it easier to glue the back seam and it will lay flat. You want to remove the paper too. I left it on so you could see
better in the photo.
Hey, Lets go on to the next page and see how it all turns out!
