Well, this is as far as I’m going to go today.
The tip went on the crown like a charm. A charm! I couldn’t believe it, after all the wrestling it took to get there.
I’ve glued the bias strip around top side of the brim and around the edge where the tip meets the crown. It’s nearly 7pm, so I’m going to stop here and let both sections dry thoroughly overnight before starting in with the flannel mull and adding more glue.
That will be tomorrow’s project.
