I started making this for a tea party my aunt was throwing, but it wasn't finished in time, so I'm showing it off here! It stays on with a ribbon and a comb sewn on the back. I painted the little face too.

It's a little wonky, but the next one will be better.
Thanks for looking!
Hi! This is my first attempt at making a tutorial, so hopefully it makes sense and helps someone make something they enjoy! Here is my tutorial for making a fascinator. I'm sure there are a million better ways to do it, but this is my one simple method. Explanation follows the images.
Materials needed:
felt
fabrics of your choice
scissors
measuring tape or string
sewing machine or needle and thread
ribbon
small hair comb
decorations of your choice
http://www.unordinary.org/tutorial.jpg
1. cut two layers (to make it keep it's shape) of felt in your desired shape and size. I made a simple oval shape.
2. Use the felt as a pattern to cut out another piece of fabric. This will be the fabric that shows on the outside of the hat, so pick something you think is pretty.
3. Use the tape measure to measure to outer edge of the fascinator shape.
4. Cut out another piece of fabric a bit longer than the outer edge of the fascinator shape. This is for the decorative edge and holding the layers of felt and fabric together. Make it four times the width you want the edge to be. I cut mine out at about three and a half inches wide and 21 inches long, but yours may be different.
5.Fold the edges of the long strip of material into the center of the strip. Then fold the folded strip over the edge of the felt and fabric oval and pin it into place.
6. Sew around the edge, removing pins as you go, and attaching it to the fascinator.
7. Cut a piece of ribbon long enough to wrap around your head, under your chin, and tie in a bow. Place the center of the ribbon in the center back of the fascinator and pin into place.
8. Sew the ribbon onto the fascinator at both edges. This is also a good time to hand sew on your small hair comb to the back of your fascinator. I don't have any more combs, though, so no image is available for this step.
9. You are basically finished, but now comes the best part! Now is when you add whatever decorations you please to your fascinator! This time I sewed on some red tulle and plastic spiders.
10. Don't you look snazzy! Wear your fascinator out on the town!
11. Don't forget to post your completed fascinators here so I can see them!

This is awesome, I love hats.
This is so edgy and pretty at the same time.

Nice work!
I think I'm gonna have to try this, was it hard to make?

For years, I thought that one couldn't wear glasses AND a veil. You've proved me so wrong!

That's so neat! The face is kind of creepy, in a good way. Smiley I'd love to make one of these some day, so thanks for the tutorial!

Thank you everyone! Ha ha, is there a social rule against wearing glasses and veils together that I didn't know about?
I'm glad to provide a tutorial! Hopefully it's of some use to someone!

No rule at all. Just a personal MISTAKE of mine!
