Okay so I bought this straw hat last summer for a few Euros. I've always wanted one but it looks kind of plain....
Off with the old ribbon.
(For reference, that's Reimu.)
Nice picture NebuK! Here are 1,33 m of red ribbon (width: 4 cm) and Tamiya masking tape! I love Tamiya tape, it's so useful (not only for model kits as you can see)!
Pieces are prepared on the cutting mat.
Smother fabric paint onto the ribbon.
While we wait for it to dry, onto sewing the big ribbon.
I've skipped a few steps here (can you tell I wanted to get it over with?). Cut out a rectangular piece (width 20 cm, height 32 cm) and crease the white ribbon (width 2 cm), sew everything together on the wrong side.
First check.. um.. doesn't look that great yet.
Almost. The bottom isn't closed yet (because I needed a hole to turn it inside out).
Painting the dots.
Sew it onto the hat by hand.
