Research/ Inspiration



  • Hat stands -use a foam ball squeezed onto a head shape, or a plastic grape for the top. The stand can be a golf tee. Paint the same colour. Or use a chess piece.
  • Hat boxes - cover a pre-cut wooden shapes (circle, square, hearts) with paper, glue a small ribbon around the top to simulate a lid, and decorate with embellishments of choice
  • Hats perched on top of the doll's head look as though the hat is wearing the doll, and it should be the other way around! To avoid that, dress the doll completely without wigging, make your hat and decorate it. Then glue to the head. Adjust the position to look natural, so the head is in the hat. Gaps between the hat and head can be filled with bits of cotton ball.Now fill in the hair using tweezers. Start from the bottom, glue in layers. Curls are last, around face, ears and forehead.
  • Use buckram or cross stitch material, dampen and from around a desired shape, Fasten in place with an elastic band, remove and trim to size
