Brown Purple Hair Fascinator with Flower and Feathers
A fascinator is somewhere between a barrette and a hat. At least, that's how I describe it. They have become more popular lately. I have made a few and plan to make more. I need to use some different vendors, which has been a research task.
This piece is mostly in neutrals, but it needed a bit of a "punch", so I added a blue/purple feather to the other brown tones.
Working on the fascinators brings back pleasant memories of my great aunt Leila, who owned a millinery store in Santa Cruz, California. She might be pleased to know the netting is back in style now also! I remember playing in her store and looking at all those colorful hats!
