12 Gifts of Christmas 2020 #4

Hello, Internet~Land! Here is Gift #4 ~ a festive Hat Pattern Set for your BJDs. When I saw this pattern in a local thrift shop, my first thought was, “I bet all my dolly friends would LOVE to have this pattern in dolly size!” I will admit, this set took quite an effort to prepare, as well as a good chunk of time! Using break times and some evenings, I was able to persevere to completion! The set includes all the pieces from the Butterick 5004 “people pattern” scaled to both 1/4 and 1/3 scale average BJD sizes: approximately 7-8 inch MSD and 8-9 inch SD heads. You may need to adjust a little for specific dolls. Basics of assembly: the tops need the edge to be tabbed, bend the tabs, then glue or sew inside the crown. Tab the inside edge of the brim, fold the tabs, and glue up into the lower edge of the crown. Various bands, bows, and flowers are included to add embellishment as desired. For dolls, I would recommend using a thick, firm felt fabric rather than building a support hat and then covering it. If you wish, however, to use a thinner and more decorative fabric, I did include the pieces for the Buckram support base. Enjoy & “Happy Hatting!”
