Day 54: Top Hat for Her

I’ve been listening to Melanie Martinez’s track Carousel for months. I can’t help it. I knew i had to make a femme style top hat with a great big BOW to match in the styles of Miss Martinez.

The bow is a FREE pattern designed by Stitch11 and can be found HERE.

I made the hat more of a costume like size, so I use bobby pins to wear it. I included instructions for bigger size.
