Botany SLiDER Hat #2

This one is felted with the Bonfire Batts carded from my bag of Botany Waste..

1st layer 
2nd layer - black Finn wool 
3rd layer.
Loving the flashes of colour..
and wondering how much of it will survive felting?

Part way through.. having just removed the resist
And several hours later - it's dark again!
Thank goodness for my daylight bulb craft lamp..
A meandering stitch line this time..
And I went a bit crazy with the daisies :)
While I was felting I turned the hat inside out to work on the inside for a while.. but while this was wet you really couldn't tell a difference, the coloured bits were dark and the silk and firestar weren't showing at all.  I forgot to turn it the 'right' way..

When it was dry I started thinking.. 'wow, all that silk just disappeared'..
until I turned it over and looked inside :)  It's like a firework display going off in there lol 
I'm actually quite glad I didn't turn it.. I rather like having the quieter side out and knowing what's going on inside :)

Think I'm going to keep this one!

Stitching are icing on the cake. The recent hats are so lovely!
