What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun with color - a bright hat is so cheerful on a gray dreary day.

Beautiful hat! I would love to know where to get the pattern.

Thank you so much! It's my own pattern - I'll work on getting it written up and posted in January.

Can you let me know when you get the peacock feather detail posted? I would like to try to embellish a plain black blanket with peacock feathers.

Hi - I'm running behind schedule with the posting - but can give you a general idea here. The feather is needle-felted using both roving and yarn left over from the hat. I started by making a rounded up-side-down heart shape for the center of the feather and adding rings around it. Get a peacock feather picture for ideas on color. To get the feathery outside edges, I used very wispy bits of brown roving combined with a bit of bronze Angelina fiber. I also added some Angelina fiber in blue and green to the center needle-felting. The feather spine is just a bit of black yarn. Hope this gives you enough info - if you need more, just e-mail me at daisyandflorrie@yahoo.com Thanks so much for your interest!
