Hello.... Would you happen to have a tutorial on how you made your Donald Hat? My bf and I are cosplaying as Daisy and Donald and I'm having trouble with his hat.
I’ll try to explain how I made the hat as best as I can—- I kinda spent the whole time winging it and hoping it would work out….
The main body is two circles (I used a dinner plate as a template). For the black part, cut out a rectangle 3-5”x your head circumference on the fold (so it’ll be 6-10” x your head. I recommend you make a mockup first). Interface the band, then fold in half, right sides together, and sew the long side shut. Flip right side out, add the elastic (I cut my elastic 2” shorter than my head and adjusted it just a bit smaller so the band is snug), and then sew the short ends together. Machine stitch the band to the bottom of the hat as best as you can (I ESPECIALLY winged this part).
THEN, Sew the big circles right sides together, and cut a slit on the bottom just big enough to flip right side out. Stuff with Polyfill (the stuff you use in plushies), and then hand stitch the opening closed.
The dent is made with heavy duty thread and an upholstery needle. I pulled the thread all the way through until the fabric was gathered. Repeat sewing the dent until it’s nice and secure. Make the little black “ribbon” by sewing the two pieces together, flip right side out, then hand sew it to the top. Add a button over the “ribbon”, and you’re done!
I tried to make as best a “pattern” as I could.
It’s kinda shitty, but I hope it helps visualize things a bit. I was kind of winging things most of the time hoping it would turn out ok, hahaha (I also used an old Donald Duck plushie I got when I was a kid as a reference).
$5000 is all that’s keeping Fawn attening her dream college and you can help! Fawn is $5000 away from her first semesters tuition. We had scholarships lines up, but for an unknown reason they fell through. These past few of weeks we have been trying everything from applying for personal loans to getting family members to be a co-signer to looking for other scholarships and have come to a dead end. We’ve applied for a payment plan to help out while we come up the money, but we’ve already missed the first payment of $1,250 which was due Aug 21st. Our next is due Sept. 3rd. Please help, she’s almost there. Pass the word, pay it forward, lets get Fawn to college!
Hey you guys, My name is Fawn and my mother recently set up a fundraising account for myself. This year I found out I got accept to CalArts in their Design & Production program within their School of Theatre. As excited as I am, I am unfortunately short 5k. We’ve tried many loans and have applied everywhere, but nothing is coming through to allow me to attend the school of my dreams. This has been my number one school since Middle School and for me to be accepted must mean I was meant to go! I just need that little push to finish off this semester and get me there. I only have two weeks before they start pulling out the students who can’t pay.
This is my dream. Please help. Even a dollar or a couple of cents would mean the world and would put me one step closer to my dreams.
I don’t normally do crap like this, but this is my dream.
Signal boosting this! Fawn is an insanely talented cosplayer who deserves to go to her dream school! :)
