marbleize our eggs but we were unsuccessful. Probably because we used brown eggs instead of white, but I am happy with the richness the brown eggs provided. I think we will try again with white eggs to see if it works better. Also, if you try this technique use a light colored dye as a base and a darker for the marble affect.
And we've also been having lots of yummy meals to supplement the cruddy weather. Who would've thought that eggless quiche could be so good.

-scrap leather (mine was 15x1 in.)
-thick elastic (at least 7-8 in depending on head size)
-a variety of feathers
-scrap felt (cut them into tear drop shapes)
-glue (I picked this up at my local craft store)
glue on the feathers lay them out to get a general idea on how you want them placed.
Place glue on spine of feather and fill up the felt until you have desired fullness. The glue does dry very stiff so make sure you are not getting too much glue on the feathers.
Here is the finished product, very easy and a fun accessory to add to your wardrobe.
