For the assembling:
  1. Cut the felt fabric according to the pattern, here will be one piece of the crown top and one piece of the side stripe. I usually use one piece thick felt only, you may adjust it as your preferences.
  2. Pin the center of the side stripe on the center front of the crown top, it will be our guide in assembling the pieces.
  3. Unite and seam the side stripe, here I use the open seam.
  4. Attach the crown top and the side stripe using the needle help as shown, then sew the seam.

For the finishing:
  1. Trim the seam as shown in the picture.
  2. Attach the bias tape on the edge of the side stripe for hems.
