Hat - well, headband

So, these are some photos so far, maybe i'll do more with it i'm not sure...It's more of an elaborate head band than a hat. I have lots more material remaining and an idea, so i'd like to try something a bit more hat-like next.







This bit I embroidered myself and then some silk painting, it's quite pretty up close.


The toggles for tying the back together.


Some of this embroidery came from old worn cushions i've had for years, some bits of ribbon, and the buttons are from a very strange source.
