So yesterday I showed you how I quickly redid the cheap boater hat I bought a few weeks ago. Well I thought seeing as there were quite a few scraps left over I should probably do something with them too! So what I made was a little mini boater for my Blythe XD
What I used:
So first thing I did was stretch and break some of the fibres in the straw so it was easier to bend it to the shapes that I wanted.
Glue in place.
Keep following the spiral around getting bigger and gluing along the way.
One it’s big enough to be the top of the hat cut and glue the edge in place.
Ending up with something like this…
Next it’s time for the middle part. Start by measuring around the circumference of the circle you just made. and form a loop of the straw, glue together!
Spiral it down until it’s tall enough, cut and glue 😀
Something like this:
Now the last part before it’s all put together: the brim.
Again spiral it out and glue in place.
Now it just needs the top to be put on!
And that’s it! Much quicker when you’re making them doll sized XD
The view from the top…
And after adding a couple of flowers it looks much cuter! Mine looks a little dodgy with excess glue because I was experimenting as I went but I’m sure if you were more careful you could get it perfect ^_^
And that’s it! Quick and easy so your doll can be as stylish as you 😀 Do you guys want me to try and make more dolls things or do you all prefer people sized things?
Wouldn’t it be awesome to have a list of all of my downloadable tutorials? OMG so convenient! I know right?
