Fascinator hat with Helmar

Over on the Helmar Design Team page this week I go into details about how 
I made a fascinator hat for the Melbourne cup. 
I have never made a hat before and it was a fun to challenge myself by doing something
 outside of my comfort zone. 

I just used things I had here. I started by gathering up items I thought that I could make a hat out of. The only things I had to buy was the headband and the little bit of milliners lace. I really like the delicate look of that lace so knew I wanted to add that on it. 

It ended up being a fabulous race for the Melbourne cup the first time a female Jockey won and at 100 to 1 odds wish I had of had a few dollars on it. 
Have a great day

  1. WOW! Even if you did it for the first time, it looks amazing. I like this hat very much. Maybe you should try yourself in doing such hats?:)
