Creating a Hat Using Mini Sparkles for Padding (The Movie)

BeStitched's latest video tutorial shows you how to make a padded hat using Mini Sparkles for padding. Sparkles and Mini Sparkles —which are the same tubular mesh as regular Sparkles but smaller in diameter— are distributed by Sundance Needlepoint.  I never would have thought to use either thread as a padding under a hat!  Very clever.

If you aren't familiar with Sparkles in either size, here are the colors and two sizes.  There is also something called Matte Sparkles now, which doesn't have a metallic woven in.
