Another Fascinating Fascinator

In May I posted my fascinator refashion for going to Royal Ascot to the races with the girls (if you've forgotten my fascinator is here)... well after I finished mine one of my friends was struggling to find a fascinator that ticked every box for her. She wanted the right colours, a good size but most importantly it had to be on a separator clip not a headband or comb grip... So guess what happened...

I made her one!

Back to Claire's Accessories we went and ended up with the same fascinator that I bought but in ivory, then we went to the local fabric shop with her dress and found matching ribbon, feathers and a cute little butterfly for the centre to hide the stitches... Then came to the assembling... starting with carefully removing the fascinator from the headband, not as easy as I had hoped, and attaching it to a separator clip...then making it look awesome!

This is what we ended up with after an hour of working on it...
And as I promised a photo of me wearing my fascinator with the dress to give you the full effect of the outfit. The necklace was a refashion too, a cheapy black necklace from Primark that had been through the wars... only cost £2 in the sale and with some black spray paint and white paint it's interesting and blends with the dress...
So here's a photo of us together sporting the refashioned fascinators.... yes the stripes clash terribly we learnt to not stand next to each other in photos after this lol!

So do you just customise or do you make your items from scratch? Your blog is looking really good and established. I only started mine last week. What advice could you give a first time crafting blogger?
