How much seam allowance are you including in the brim measurement? And does that include seam allowance for the inner part of the circle or does that need to be added? Otherwise really clear and I'm hoping to make it soon

Nice design and good, clear video.

Great tutorial and well explained, easy to follow video. Can't wait to try this when my wool felt gets in, thank you so much for sharing!

My little brother wants to be a wizard for halloween so this will help us a lot with his costume! Thanks!
