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.
hot melt adhesive or multipurpose glue.
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 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..
