I made these fascinators for display at my work (a craft and haberdashery store).  It is horse-racing season here in Melbourne so my boss wanted some hat-type things in the store....

Hi!
With the permission from NiceandLucy I'm now reposting the wonderful, wonderful tutorials she made for the fascinators! Just give me a PM if the photos decide to not work and I'll upload them again Smiley

I'll post it as links as those pictures are probably huge!

I also made a yellow peony one but it wasn't as nice as these Sad I think I will put 3 on display and then wear the cabbage rose one in the store.

It doesn't feel like exercise when you're wearing chiffon.

Those are beautiful! However, I'm not at all familiar with fascinators? Are they like a hat, or do they pin into your hair?

Oh thanks for everyone's really nice comments!  I think mainly fascinators are for younger ladies to wear to the races if they don't want to spoil their hair by wearing a full hat Smiley I think usually you use more veiling and then it looks more hat-like... These ones are just built up on satin-covered hair combs, but really I think you are supposed to use what is called a 'hat shape' - a curved kind of disk made of sinamay or straw (like what a hat is made of), which has a hair comb under it to fix it to your head.  xx

Oooh, you wouldn't mind posting a tutorial, would you?  You're so lucky to work in a craft shop!  I should come and visit your store when I'm in Melbourne in December.
