Default Re: mini top hats...what type of headband to use

Here is a pic of the underside of one of my hats with clips. This was the first one I ever made...I now move them as close to the inside of the hat as I can get. They still show a little bit but if you cover them in ribbon coordinating to hair color the are not noticeable at all.
