- First I gathered all the parts together that I thought I might need. I rinsed out and dried a 2 Liter soda bottle to make the support for the fascinator.
From left to right: Soda bottle, fabric, pink tulle, square buttons, gray felt, contact paper pattern, feathers, and pearl trim. Save the pattern for the plastic, the fabric, and the felt lining.
Hold the pattern to the bottle and trace around it. You can still see the plastic inside the fascinator. This will be covered by the gray felt lining.
|I am amused that the fabric I picked has an illustration of a woman wearing a fascinator.|
|Love these square buttons. I used 3 on the fascinator. They'll look great on the dance floor.|
|Polka dotted guinea hen feathers.|
|I sewed the buttons through the plastic.|
|Attaching the lining.|
6. You can do some of the steps with hot melt glue. I live in the desert and I don't feel secure using glue. But if you needed to make a bunch in a hurry for a dance recital and they'd only be worn a few times, hot melt should be a lot faster. You can also use it to keep things from shifting before you sew them. I like hand sewing, so I sewed it all together.
