Last night was our fascintaor making workshop at Buns & Roses WI. Hayley very cleverly gave it the title (Sina) Major Tom, sinamay being the scratchy material used to make fascinator bases!
Anyway, seeing as I have made several fascinators now I was there mostly to run the bar and help other members, but I did find time to make a little brooch in the same method.
I used some of the waste sinamay in a rectangle shape. It is also curved at the opposite corners so is quite funky.
I covered it in brown silky material and edged it with orange gingham ribbon.
To decorate I scrunched up some bright orange fabric and orange lace and fastened on with some buttons.
In the opposite top corner I folded a bit of the same gingham ribbon round the edge and added another button.
And here it is in-situ!
You can see some more pics of what we got up to and the creations of our lovely members at the Buns & Roses WI blog.
