What advice would you give someone starting this project? The purple outer fabric was sewn into a tube. I layed it flat on the table, and using my fashion ruler, drew an arc from one corner to the other, creating very pointed "devil" horns. I sewed the arc and trimmed the excess. The pink lining was sewn into a tube. I then put the pink tube around the outside of the purple one (right sides together) and sewed them together at the rim of the hat. I pulled the pink lining down , then tucked it inside the purple hat. I felt inside where the seam should be for the pink lining and marked it with a safety pin. Using my fashion ruler again, I drew a gentle arc on the pink lining, and sewed it, with them seam showing on the lining's outside. I tucked it back into the hat where the seam ultimately won't show. I took each of the pointy horns and tied a single knot...working it to make them both look even.

Could you give more guidance for the lining and cute knots at the top?

The purple outer fabric was sewn into a tube. I layed it flat on the table, and using my fashion ruler, drew an arc from one corner to the other and sewed the arc. I made the corners pointed and long so I could tie them into knots when the hat was turned right side out. the pink lining was sewn into a tube. I then put the pink tube around the purple one, right sides together and sewed them together at the rim of the hat. I turned the pink lining and tucked it inside...feeling inside where the seam should be for the pink lining. Using my fashion ruler again, I drew an gentle arc on the pink lining, and sewed it, with them seam showing on the outside of the lining. Does this make sense?

I added better instructions in the section "What advice would you give someone starting this project?"

Super Cute! How wide is the tube? Wouldn't an arc make one point? I guess I'm a visual learner. I'd like to try it though.
