Some Feathered Fascinators

I really wanted some nice feathers for more fascinators but as none was at hand I had to become inventive.  I looked around and decided to try a white plastic straw and some coloured felt.  I cut out two identical feather shapes from the felt.  Then I made a bias cut in both ends of a straw and sewed the straw in between the two layers of felt so that one end of the straw protruded like a quill.  I think the “feathers” look rather attractive.  Here are some of the feathered fascinators I made:
