Neither Peacock Nor Paisley Headband

One of my long-term goals is to make more of the things I wear.  Accessories are a good place to start because they're small and quick.  I've recently learned to needle felt, and decided these shapes would look fabulous decorating a headband.

It's peacock without the feathery shedding, paisley without the crowded details, and a piece of art I'll want to wear.

Here's the felt in more detail.

I have one longer project in the works (weddings make great deadlines!) and pretty soon, I'll have the first part ready to share.
