A conical pixie hat in decorated christmas tree format.
A conical pixie hat in decorated christmas tree format. On a fat quarter of any fabric you get a single hat. On a yard of the wider fabrics you get a set of 6 hats to make with different colours of baubles (provided you keep your seams tiny!).
A flimsy fabric is definitely going to need stiffening with a suitable lining material. There is just one seam required - to join up the straight edges and make a cone. Cut the fabric flush with the ends of the pointed fir fronds but leave a seam allowance along the 2 straight edges. For a fabric which frays, you will want to hem the pointy base of the hat with blanket stitch. Optionally add a pom-pom, star or angel to the top of the hat. The 5 extra baubles can be dangled from the base of the tree or paired into ear-rings (I use soft cotton loops over the ears!) with the last one used as a drink tag or coaster.
On gift-wrap paper, ask for a different layout to get 6 hats which you simply cut and secure with sticky tape!

It was very late last night (as per the forum discussion) but I did eventually figure out that Victoria wasn't proposing to attach the whole hat to a drink. :-D<br/><br/>I also carefully didn't mention fusible web by name in my original description since I haven't actually seen and tried it myself yet. But that was the "suitable" material I was expecting might work.

I suspect the coordinating ornament would be the drinks marker, matching the hat of the party attendee. Two sides printed, put together with wispy fusible web or fusible interfacing, would hold its shape as either a marker or a tree-topper, and not be too heavy. For that matter, one could stiffen the hat the same way, with a bit of fusible interfacing in the pointy part, and it would hold up an ornament just fine.
I was indeed thinking of adding just such an ornament in the remaining corner space of each tree cone but, since I was considering it as a tree topper, I was concerned that anything extra at all which was capable of holding a shape (ie padded) would be too heavy atop a fabric cone. Isn't a hat a bit large to attach to a glass though? Last year I'd been thinking more in terms of a set of smaller circular napkins (with a slit to the centre) for that purpose. I never got around to actually doing it though.
Hahaha, love these. If you added a coordinating "ornament" for each hat in the empty spots They could be sewn to a loop of elastic as a stemware marker. Also, you could avoid the blanket stitch and just use one of the anti-fray products on the market.
