Before you are thoroughly sick of this topic, I thought I should explain how I made my fascinators.
Needed materials: Dollar store headbands (the fabric covered ones)
sturdy felt (the flimsy kind won’t hold its shape)
needle and thread
silk flowers, ribbon, sheer fabric, buttons, lace etc.
Step number one: Cut out two felt circles (5-6 inch radius). Place one of the circles on the inside of the headband so that it is more to one side. Sew the felt to the headband.
Step number two: Place the other felt circle on top of the first one so that it covers the headband. Pin in place.
Step number three: Sew the felt pieces together. Now you have a base upon which to put your embellishments. I sewed mine in place, but you could use a fabric glue.
There are the three latest versions. Now, I promise no more fascinators! I hope this has been helpful for those who are interested in making some themselves. It’s been fun, but its time to move on to another addicting craft. Heeeheeeheee…
