Straw Hat Making 101
Instructions are for Dollhouse size Straw Boater.
Glue two flat strips of hat braid together lengthwise. Glue the second strip not on edge but half way covering the second strip. This will define the crown height so make it as tall as you would like. They should be long enough to go around a 3/4" dowel. Glue the ends together around the dowel and then glue the disk made in step 1 on the top. Barely glue the edge. If you need more glue then add more to the inside so it won't be seen.
Glue the crown to the brim at the center and decorate to your hearts content.
Here is the finished Hat. Enjoy....!
