We’re celebrating Wear a Hat Day on 31st March and 1st April in aid of Brain Tumour Research, so of course it wouldn’t be Hobbycraft if we didn’t get crafty with our hats! Top milliner to the stars, Stephen Jones, kindly offered to try his hand at the challenge and here’s one he created – a very urban style dragon baseball cap!

With thanks to Stephen Jones.

7. Wrap some chain around the dragons neck and trim so that it reaches to the sides of the front panel of the cap. Glue the ends of the chain to the cap.
