First of all you need the template. I found the template quite nice. At first I thought it was a bit small but after perching the finished piece on my 7-yrs-old head, it looked really really cute.
Using my good old printer I printed the template out and trimmed around it. After that was done I placed the template on top of the pattern paper. While I didn’t use anything but my left hand to hold the two pieces of paper together, I think it’d be better if the papers were adhered using non-permanent tape. So if you’re not steady with the other hand, do use a non-permanent tape.
NOTE: IF you want to hide the hole for where the string to hold the hat up will go hidden, you might want to create the holes before adhering the ribbon. I made the mistake of not doing this and I had to punch my holes above the ribbon. While it ended up looking great it wasn’t meant to be that way.
I could have been done but the hat just seemed so empty and so I went back to work. I remember a tutorial by Laura Vegas a few Tuesdays back and decided to use a similar method to create some flowers.
I made three of the above and after adding the brads and gluing them to the hat, my hat now looks like this below:
