City Lights Hat

City Lights Hat Instructions
Designed by Cynthia Kimura

Add even more pizzazz to your style by dressing up some of your favorite hats with beading components and other items. Cynthia started with a custom fabric band and then added seed beads and a lovely TierraCast button to make this hat stand out. You can find even more inspiration for decorating hats in this Artbeads Cafe episode.

Step one:
Cynthia's sister made the band sewed onto this hat. You can choose your favorite fabrics or decorate a piece with ribbon and other scraps. Make sure your band is the right length for attaching to your chosen hat.

Step two:
Embellish your fabric with beads and other components. Cynthia simply stitched Miyuki 11/0 round seed beads in opaque metallic raspberry onto the fabric. She decorated a floral embellishment by sewing on the TierraCast antique copper-plated pewter dragonfly button.

Step three:
Stitch or glue your band onto your hat.
