  • Supplies

You can turn hats you've had for ages into new treasures by creating your own hatband. Cheri created a seed bead herringbone stitch band for a hat that needed a little something more. You can also try making hatbands with braided silk ribbon, leather, chain, and more. For more inspiration for decorating hats, check out this Artbeads Cafe episode.
