Due to some family health issues, I have had very little time to sew lately. I am hoping to have some catch-up time starting in June, though, and that is keeping me going.
I did manage to find some time to make a hat, of all things! Our church had a gala last Saturday, which was also the day of the Kentucky Derby. The party had a racino theme, and everyone was invited to wear a hat.
I’ve been fascinated with “fascinators” ever since Princess Beatrice wore the pink toilet-seat fascinator to Prince Harry’s wedding. So I decided to make one.
I muddled through the directions I could find here and there on line, but I would really love to take a real millinery class. And I have to say, it was a lot of fun to wear this hat. It was so lightweight, I would forget I even had it on. Occasionally I would catch a glimpse of myself in a mirror and scare myself half to death!
PS: If you have some extra time, go to ETSY and search for fascinator. And PPS: My hair really isn’t that orange!!! I can’t get it to photograph right. My excuse this time is that I took it in “bathroom light”…
