Simply Fascinating

There isn't anything better than to check out a new crafting establishment & learn a new craft. Last Sunday, a group of us went to the new Hands-On 3rd and took a class making Fascinators. Our instructor, Corina, showed us the ropes and then set us free to play and design. This creative group got very quiet and went to work. The results were outstanding.

Here is my fascinating creation. It is made of black wool felt and chicken wire horse hair veiling. The rhinestone clip came from my Grandma's jewelry collection. It is one of a pair of shoe clips. It is completely handsewn and I am just smitten with it. Every morning I put it on for a few minutes. Now the challenge will be to build the perfect ensemble to highlight my little hat.

This special crafting occasion was to celebrate Regina's birthday.
Happy Birthday!
