A few months ago I had an email from a lady who was organising a themed party. The theme was a ship wrecked treasure island! And so she asked me to make 6 fascinators.
I was given free rein to do what ever I wanted and the brief was simple: “fun, practical, each unique and different to the other & reminiscent of a deserted island!” What a great brief!
And so this is what I created……
This is a royal blue sinamay based percher hat with a mini beach and 3D palm tree. This was my favourite one I think!
Then there was this very glittery crab hair comb that sat neatly on the head!
Another cute hair comb was this friendly lobster! It really looked great on! Can I have 2 favourites?
Then there was this dolphin percher hat, again the waves are 3D and the dolphin leaps out over the top of the head!
This seagull percher was made of a sinamay base and the white birds really stood out!
And finally a deserted island wouldn’t be complete without a lost treasure chest. This was set on a comb and was actually really easy to wear. I’d put secret loops into it so that the wearer could secure it with extra pins if need be.
I loved making these fun designs and it was great to be given the scope to do whatever I wanted! Hope you enjoy looking at them!
