One day I was passing by a thrift store and decided to go in. There I found a fedora hat, the tag said it had a defect. And it had! It's ribbon was torn off, but the price was too good to leave the hat in the store. So I bought it and now I'm gonna show you how I repaired it.

Step 1: What You'll Need

First of all you'll need a damaged or just boring fedora hat. Mine had no ribbon. But if you just don't like the original hatband, tear it off carefully and replace it with studded one.
Then you'll need 
  • * a new ribbon or some fabric to make a ribbon,
  • * scissors,
  • * measuring tape,
  • * chalk for drawing on fabric,
  • * triangular ruler with 45 degree angle,
  • * some pins and thread,
  • * and of course - STUDS.
Very nice - it looks so fancy now :D
Thanks. I like it much better now :D
