Simple Fascinator Tutorial

By Tata.

To comply my 19th American girl look for Indonesian Crafter Monthly Challenge (Country), I need a fascinator. You can actually find fascinator easily at various hair accessories shops, but it will be fun to make it from scratch. You can match it with your specific style while saving much money on it by recycling your old stuff.

For this fascinator, I take my old hair band and some part of my old brocade dress. 

Tools and materials:
1. Fragments of my old dress.
2. Old head band.
3. circle shaped cardboard (covered with fabric.
4. Satin fabric.
5. Brocade fabric.
6.Tile fabric
7. Flannel/felt
8. Corsage
hot melt adhesive or multipurpose glue.

Step 1. I cut out out a the old dress into some parts of fragments and use the lower part to decorate the fascinator (see the circled part).

Step 2. Then I take the satin fabric, fold it and sew the sides just like you can see at the picture above. Don;t forget to left a cleft to flip the inside out. Then crease the result for ruffled effect by using rubber band or sew it out manually to create the result as you can see above.

Step 3. Cover up the cardboard which has already layared with black fabric (I use felt) with brocade as above.

Step 4. Twist and adhere the rest of the material or as you please. And put in the corsage in the middle of the twist.

Step 5. Cover up the old head band with tile fabric and arange the rest of the fabric like you can see at the picture.

Step 6. Last, combine those two parts (the corsage and the head band) with the hot melt adhesive. Tomake it look neater, cover up the glued surface with felt.

And here is the final result..

About La-conchita

Starting from our mutual interest in crafts, beautiful things and social activities, we -Tata and Eka, two best friends for more than 12 years, started this blog as the place to update our last project and share interesting things as a part of our hobbies.

But apparently, sharing the projects and our work results just between us is not enough. It will be a shame to enjoy the excitements and satisfactions of getting inspirations, doing and finishing our projects just inside our circle.

So we decided to enlarge the circle to the public by giving the chance of participating in our projects and donation programs.

You can do it by donating your unused stuff here.
Or purchasing our new products, preloved products and other products.

For any queries, you can contact us or connect to us through our FB or Twitter.

With love,
