Ooh. I have a big bag full of leather scraps. How big should I make this if I want a mini-hat, the right size to attach to my head with ribbons, a headband, or hairclips, without being too heavy?
Actually tried this today, to see if a small one can be done in a thinner leather. just using the pattern Mr. Banwell provided at normal paper print size yielded this :
came out to about 3 inches tall by 3.5 wide by 4.5 long. it's almost the standard for the mini toppers (smallest size) and it was easy to attatch hair combs to make it wearable.
A big thank you to Mr. Banwell for posting this. what a fabulous project!
