A Fascinating Craft

My latest crafting experiment is the making of fascinators, those jaunty little bits of fluff that adorn the society elite when they go to tea or a wedding.  I want to make several for a special occasion coming soon and so I have been trying my hand at constructing some with a few things I have on hand: some headbands in various colours, coloured felt, ribbons,tulle, artificial flowers, felt maple leaves, buttons and anything else I can find.  Here are the first results:

I’m having great fun making these and I have been hand-sewing them together.  I have some large barrettes to use as well, but I will need to use the glue gun to construct them.

    1. They aren’t hard to make, Claremary, All you need is felt, some fabric covered headbands and lots of pretty embellishments. The dollar stores are great resources!

      1. Yours are incredibly lovely. I may do these as a project with my sister. She has always been the creative one with quilting and sewing and knitting. I think she’d love this and she would wear them everywhere. She’s a hat person. Thanks!
