Fascinating!

Ellen's Fascinator

We did lots of house chores this weekend as well as some closet organization research. The highlight of the weekend, however was attending a class at Hands on 3rd to learn how to create a fascinator! This was in celebration of Regina's birthday.

Our instructor, Corina, is very talented. She creates one-of-a-kind fascinators for sale. She showed us some samples of bridal fascinators, along with some other styles. We had instruction in how to manipulate felt for the base of our mini-hats; how to attach various design elements and more.



Once we all began to work on our fascinators, it became very quiet in the workshop. Jenna had generously provided us with cupcakes, cookies, snacks and drinks to fuel our creativity. We all had a great time and ended up with some darling fascinators!
Happy Birthday, Regina!!

I have been re-watching "Jeeves and Wooster" and I think we need to bring back hats for ladies and gentlemen. Sorry I missed it!
