Hat Ornament

I know, we usually do not wear woolens on the spring and summer, but with felting you can make cute ornaments or accents, like the felted flower for this straw garden hat!  When I make felted flowers, I usually try to make all the petals from one continuous hank of wool, twisted and needled into the flower shape.  Then I needle in the contrasting center and any other color accents.  This makes for a sturdier flower, one that will never loose its petals!
Happy needlin'!
