Tutorial: Miki hat by Destinys-spirits Tutorial: Miki hat by Destinys-spirits
A lot of people have PM'd/noted/asked me about how I made my Miki hat over various websites. So I thought it was about time I made a tutorial so that I can link here whenever someone next asks me!

Be nice, it's my first tutorial! I'd love tips on how to make it better~

Also... My hat was a tad on the small side because I was being an idiot, I have my moments! So please please please make sure you wear your wig properly and measure your head that way!! Give room for seam allowance as well, I would've been able to wear it whilst running, jumping, etc if I had made it long enough! I've learnt my lesson, but please don't make the same mistakes as I have! [Make it long enough so that it fits over your head nicely as well lol, this is what I get for being lazy!]

.:: Miki from Shugo Chara! ::.
Shugo Chara! belongs to Peach-Pit

EPIC! I love Shugo Chara, especially Ikuto <3. Are you team Amuto? Oh, btdubs I am so in love with this tutorial! Thank you. I was also wondering....if you could do a tutorial for Utau Hoshina's Black Diamond Hat. Anways, THANK YOU I LOVE THIS THING!

Haha, always good to see more Shugo Chara fans! And yes I am team Amuto!
Thank you so much! I only really make tutorials based on things I've done in the past as then I take progress pictures along the way and put them together to help people. However I've made a hat similar; [link]
If you just enlarge the panels but use the same directions then you should be able to get Utau's Black Diamond hat. The height should be around 12-13" I discovered as I've made a super baggy hat just recently.

If you're willing to wait a couple of months I'll be more than happy to make a tutorial. But unfortunately I'm moving to Uni in under a week and my sewing machine isn't coming with me so I don't have time this week, sorry! :(
