However whilst I was sticking the leather onto the backing, prior to beading the edging, I managed to get glue in my hair.
By the time I had noticed the glue had set to a solid lump and there was nothing for it but to cut the bit of hair off. I have a wedding next weekend so off to the hairdressers I went, then to the hat shop to buy a fascinator. Hopefully nobody will notice!
I’ve added the little splash of Swarovski crystals on the curly wave section and now I am working on the freeform back pieces.
