Finishing a Fascinator

My not quite finished fascinator. Just need to do a bit of curling and the centre
Last night I joined several other like minded souls and learnt how to make a fascinator. I learnt that it takes a while and you need quite a lot of stuff!!!
Some of the amazing bits and pieces


Lots of material and hard work.
















It was at the Make Cafe in Christchurch, always a good place to be. My fascinator is by no means finished as there are several steps and it took a while, but it looks good on the hat that I am going to wear to Kerryn and Barry's wedding.

Next time though I will make it with smaller petals.

I link to these places.

  1. Well, aren't you fancy Karen? LOL If I knew you were so clever I would've got you to make me one for the Melb Cup luncheon I'm going to next Tuesday! (I already knew you were clever. LOL) I did however manage to pick one up from our fabric store, less 40% so it only cost $11. I don't think I could've bought the stuff to make it for that cheap. I'll know where to come if I ever need another one.

    1. That is an awesome price Anne, you certainly could not make it for that. I enjoyed doing it but I think if I saw one cheap I would just get it
