- Sophie &Friends
In the first of a three part series, Sophie creates a much requested accessory - the duct tape hat.
Measure the circumference of your head with a measuring tape or string. Add two inches to that measurement. In our case this is 26 inches.
Lay three strips of tape 26 inces long on your work surface. This will become the band of the hat.
Lay one piece sticky side down and then lay a second piece sticky side down next to it, overlapping by approximately 1/2 inch. Flip this piece over and lay the third piece directly down the center of these two pieces, covering the seam.
Fold the edges over the center strip creating a long, very strong strap. It should be 2 1/2 inches wide.
Wrap the duct tape band around your head. Mark the spot where the ends overlap with your finger.
Prepare a few pieces of tape 2" x 2".
Seal the band at the spot you have made with your fingers with two 2" x 2" pieces.
Cut a small "mouse hole" where the two pieces overlap.
Use a few small pieces of tape to reinforce the edges of the "mouse hole"
Next we will make a small strap. Measure a piece of tape approximately 8 inches long.
Fold this piece of tape into thirds, creating a strap.
Cut the strap in half.
Attach one piece of strap to each side of the mouse hole. This will allow you to adjust the size of your hat band.
Attach sticky back velcro to each of the strap pieces.
Your hat band is complete. In the next video we will create the brim.
