My friends at The Stitch Society* Yorkshire have asked me to do a make and take workshop for them in June. It has to be something that can be made in around two and a half hours and I wanted something suitably summery. So here it is! A rosey posey fascinator - perfect for Summer weddings or a day at the races.
I've based the design on my wire flower brooches and I wanted to keep the lightness and translucency of the materials. I have made these using two-tone crystal organza. I love the way the colour changes as the fabric moves. The one in the picture is made from a cerise shot with yellow and green shot with black. I've added some twists of wire and small beads as a nod to the original design.
