half a hat ?

My online Surface Design in Felting class of Fiona 
has reached it's third week,
and it's no surprise :

BTW, there is very good news 
for all of you who thought you had to wait till the end of summer
for Fiona to do a second run of her class :
the next run starts in April
(till half May)

For this third week 
there weren't as many samples to make as week 1 and 2
So I took the chance to make a piece with
three little techniques in it :
bumps, an enclosed big glass nugget and seed beads.
All of that in a head band
or you could say
(is that a Mad Hatter or what ?!)

When I made the (first) resist I forgot to enlarge my design ...
(even being experienced doesn't prevent you from doing stupid things  :-(  !)
so then I made a new (bigger) one.

I used two layers merino in blues

One thing : with all these special bits you must do some slow felting !

Despite my calculations the piece stayed too big,
so I cut it in the back 
now I can adjust it to the right size.


and the back

(I am definately gonna wear it)
