I did it! Lots of room for improvement. 3 days was not enough to dry the MMF/gumpaste brim all the way. When I turned it right-side up off the real hat (used to mold the brim) the sides flopped and cracked. Was able to hot glue it back together again, but then had to cover the brim with pink felt to hide the glue. Everything else is MMF except for the BC straw. I thought the bandanna turned out pretty good. A BIG THANK YOU TO ALL YOU PREVIOUS HAT MAKERS WHO GAVE ME SUCH GOOD ADVICE.
