So, I just released a new video on how to make a mini top hat from craft foam. Way back when I made my first top hat video, I tried using a scaled down version of that pattern to create a mini top hat. The result was rather ……. disappointing. The brim was way too thick and it was all out of proportion. I gave up on it for the time being.
Anyways, a little while ago, one of my viewers requested I make a corseted mini top hat, so I decided to give it another go, and this time it turned out great.
The thing I like about this pattern, is that it is different from the many DIY mini top hats, as most of them are made as a straight cylinder, which is easy to make, but not super sexy. I love the curved lines that you are able to get on a traditional felt top hat, and so, tried to achieve this feel using plates of foam.
So, here it is, hope you enjoy it!
