Great job! I love the color, and the point of your hat is awesome! Doesn't felting feel like magic?..well hard work and then magic!!

Very nice!!!!

What surprised you about the project?? I've only done a small amount of wet felting, but expect that I will do more - so it would be interesting to me to know what was surprising. Smiley

Thanks:)
Well, when I made a hat form it was soooo big, i didnt really believe it would shrink so much Smiley but it did  Grin
and also had problem with laying out the layers because after rubbing there were some holes Sad I didnt lay out the wool properly - now I know, so I had to repair itduring proces so it took me a bit longer than usual to make a hat.
But for my surprise  Grin Roll Eyes I really like the result and it is also wearable  Cheesy
It just need lots of practise Smiley good luck to you Wink
