Isn’t that what they tell you in Math class? As it turns out, they are right. I’ve known this for a while but all those formulas for circumference, radius, diameter proved to be most helpful at the beginning of this project.
Remember this hat from this post?
Do you think I could use it “as is”? No, not me. I had to alter it, change it. It was only the beginning.
Because then I had to cover it and add a small shelf.
And if I wasn’t challenged enough by that, I wondered if it was possible to change the point as well. So I took my next hat and a very sharp knife and gave it a try.
Now we’re talking ovals and angles! Who knew?!
I learned that it can be quite complicated to cover a cone-shaped angular object with an uneven zig-zaggy opening. Before you judge, just think of the mayhem I would cause if I wasn’t doing crazy stuff like this.
I wanted to be fair to the angles, so I created the next one with some crazy witchy curves.
Lace and ribbon and glittery tinsel rounded out the finish to the start of this project.
That seems like a long time ago now. Life was so simple back in the olden days of four weeks ago.
As for the chess pieces I mentioned here, they serve their purpose well by giving this project some legs!
Now it’s back to the laboratory to see what I can cook up next.
