My first fascinator!

A childhood friend agreed to be my guinea pig and commissioned a holiday fascinator, my first ever!  Janet gave me complete freedom in the colours, design, etc so I chose to use rich warm colours and textures that hopefully say Holiday without being too literal!

I used lavender and heather dried from my mom’s garden, dried red mini roses I snipped from my apartment rose, and dried white and pink dried roses from my mom’s garden in Robert’s Creek.  I accented with a bit of navy veiling and gold and mossy green velvet millinery leaves, all attached to a navy sinamay base!  It’s nearly complete and I think it turned out pretty well for my first try!

  1. Are you sure this is your first time making fascinators? You are so talented! The fascinator you made is so fashionable and pretty! Great colour choices! I bet your friend loved it! :)

    • Thank you so much for your kind words! Yup my first hairpiece! I’m having fun figuring out how to make them, it’s so nice to hear that they look ok :) I hope she has fun wearing it!
