First you will need to clip edges alway around about 1/2" in then press the edge under about 5/8" alway around.
Put a small amount of hot glue at the back and the front tip
so it will be centered.
Then you will begin hot gluing from the front to the back, you will
have to put small tucks as you go to ease the fabric in as seen in the picture below of the finished inside hat. Now repeat the same step on the other side.
YEAH! The body of your hat is finished!
Now all we need to do is make your bow and put it on .
