So after about 12 weeks of working 70 hour weeks, and not being able to craft AT ALL, i wind up on a show where i have very little to do. So, being me, I bring crafts to work. These goodies I made with out too much of a grand plan, just made a base and added feathers. The underside of the peacock one needs some shuushing to look prettier, but all in all I think they are lovely.

Peacock feathers, spears, ostrich feathers and marabou

They ARE lovely!  Wink I never wear things like these but I quite like yours and it looks like you put a lot of work into them.

I have been fascinated (har har) by these lately and knocked up a few in what I think is a similar way to yours. I used hot glue and the pieces stay together but the clips start to come loose really quick - I see you sewed yours on and will be stealing the tip Cheesy

They look great, good luck at the show Smiley

I will try to do a tutorial when I am home for christmas these next few weeks. I am going to grad school in the UK, so I don't have any materials with me Smiley

I got most of my feathers off ebay, as it is the cheapest option. I use fabric scraps to cover the facinator base, which i made out of stiff (like really thick stiff) interfacing. The combs and clips i picked up at walmart in the hair goods section. I used button thread to sew the clips. etc on b/c it is a bit heartier.

A lot of spare time and creative energy and i really just made them up as i went along. I love things being off balance, and that is kinda the point of a fascinator, in my opinion Smiley

So glad you like!
