I went along to the racecourse where it was held this year and of course needed a hat to wear.
I LOVE hats, I wish I could wear a hat every day of the week. Anyway I had checked out some of the hats and fascinators in Myers and David Jones (our two big department stores here) and I have to tell you I am in the wrong business. A nice-ish fascinator goes for about AU$100, a great one is over AU$200!!!!
Anyway I wanted a new hat and the one I loved was worth a weeks rent and I thought why not make my own. So I did. It was actually quite easy I just used some fabric and interlining which I quickly stitched into a long rectangle and then ironed pleats into it. I attached it to a head band, added a fabric flower I had in my sewing box and a quill. Viola new fascinator for about $5 (and I did get lots of nice comments and questions about it so I was pretty pleased!)
Today my Etsy Store has been updated with my newest designs of printable journal cards. I have to say these cards are my favourite and I hope you will like them too.
Tomorrow I will be drawing the winner of the Amy Tangerine Stamp so if you haven't entered yet, have a look at this post
