A craft project finished

I finally finished the fascinator that I started on Wednesday at The Make Cafe in Christchurch. It has been a while since I have done any craft project let alone finished something.

This is what it looked like when I finished the class - and it is on the pink hat that I intend to wear with it.

The fascinator was really fun to do but I made it too big. The tutor suggested curling the petals, so I have done that all over and then I went to my treasure chest (aka button box) and found a 1960's button for the centre and glued it in.
I have a pink hat the I have put it on and it looks great, as you can see that with all my hair etc I think the fascinator does look better on a hat. All I need to do is adjust the dress and I am ready for Kerryn's wedding.

Though I have another outfit to make which the hat will go with .... but I will need to make a different fascinator for that. I am quite looking forward to improving my skills.

If you live in CHCH and you want to learn this skill The Make Cafe are running another class in a week or so.
