Making Pirate Hat for Kikiki
Kikiki made it to another article, because frankly, it's extremely good-looking and adorable. And it looks really dandy in this pirate outfit!
First I did some measuring and mathematics and made a template for the hat. I traced the pattern on a piece of leather and hand-sewed it together.
Then I came up with the idea of some pirate skull embellishment and ordered a pack of skull charms on ebay. And then I waited and waited… and a month later, I cut off the loops and glued the skulls on.
After that I decided to add an eye patch for some serious pirate look. It was made using a leather strip and another oval piece of leather, glued together.
I like the result very much and I think Kikiki does too!
