Making professional quality mini top hats is an essential steampunk and costuming skill! 

This video tutorial shows how to make a very simple mini top hat by hand sewing the pre-punched holes. No machine sewing.

This is a hat that only needs s few basic tools.

This design is suitable to make from simple leather, or printed fabrics bonded to either hat making buckram or canvas. 

For a fast and super easy version stiffen denim or canvas with PVA wood glue then bond to decorative fabric using bondaweb  (wonderweb) double sided fusing sheet.
