Hat-bowler from peristerite head circumference, the height of the pot and the field width using a measuring tape. Cut with scissors a felt circle sized so that it fits the head circumference, the height of the bowler hat and bent the brim. Moisten ferry circle out of felt, place the circle on the pad and stretch it slightly damp felt on the block, so he was wrapped around her without wrinkles or creases.
Pin stretched the felt with pins to block the front, rear, right and left at the top, in the area of the crown. Attach the thick elastic band around the pads under the pins of winning the crown. This tape is attached to the felt and was scheduled for a recess in the place where is attached a ribbon to decorate the hat.
Fold the fields a little to the inside to give the hat a classic shape of the pot. When the hat is dry, attach a ribbon for decoration over the fields: remove the elastic band and to the scene of the deepening glue a satin ribbon.
Hat-bowler from manageroracle working surface of table or floor, plastic bags and attach them to protect from debris and adhesive. Measure the head circumference in the place where you want to make field, use the string, tie the ends of thread. Inflate the ball to fit head circumference: wear on the ball bonded thread.
Place the bulb in a container (vase, Cup) so that the top part with a plastic measuring string was out of capacity. The ball should not "sit" in the tank too tight. Rip the paper into large pieces and dip them in the glue, remove excess glue and lay the paper on top of a ball, flatten and attach it to avoid creases. Cover thus paper the entire surface of the ball to the edges of the tank (where it is planned to make field).
Cover the balloon with two more layers of paper in the same way. Allow paper to dry completely, this may take a few days. Pierce the balloon with a pin and remove it from the process. Attach the thread to the top of the blank and trim it at the height that you plan to crown, the crown cut to the selected height.
Secure the top hat in the center of the working surface on the sheet of paper. Draw and cut out a circle corresponding in size brimmed hat, glue the crown to the circle, then cover the field with three layers of glued paper. Shape the brim of my hat, without waiting for complete drying, turning down their right and left.
Allow the fields to dry completely, then detach the hat from the working surface, cut out the inner circle. Cover the finished product with paint, then lacquer, then attach the ribbon at the crown.
