Miniature Top Hat

I took a class at Quilt Festival this year with Gilbert Muniz:  Make a Mini Mad-Hatter Topper.  This was a fun class & Gilbert is a great teacher.  I've made hats for dolls, but this one was not doll sized.  More like half scale human size.  It was great because I learned millinery techniques and used supplies I've never used before.
Clockwise from back:  buckram, french elastic, petersham, millinery wire.
The only one of these I've used before is buckram.

I wanted to do a "Christmas fantasy" hat, and here it is:

If you ever get a chance to take a class from Gilbert, I highly recommend it!
