  4. Cut a strip of felt 2½ times the depth of the hat and the circumference of the hat plus an extra 1”.
  5. Cut ½” wide strips of Peel & Stick sheets. Along one long edge of felt strip, place Peel & Stick strips ½” from the edge. Remove Peel & Stick liner and fold down edge. Press in place.
  6. Place more ½” wide Peel & Stick strips along folded edge to meet the top of hat and cover the clipped tabs.
  7. Peel away liner one strip at a time and press the felt against the hat form as you work your way around the hat.
  8. When you get to the center back, overlap the edges slightly and trim the felt. Glue the seam together with adhesive. Let dry.

  10. Cut a strip of netting. For a large bow, use 18”. Bring netting ends into the center, gather and press a piece of Peel & Stick sheet over the center. Cut a second piece of netting 4” long. Remove liner and wrap around the center. If desired, add another rolled piece of netting under the center to add dimension and cover any adhesive.
