Our WI (Women's Institute) group are having a special meeting on Wednesday, where other local groups are invited to join us. We're having a theme of Weddings (I wonder why) and we're all invited to wear hats and make buttonholes - I think these are called corsages in America.
Now I don't do hats; I'm too short, my head's too small and I wear glasses, all reasons not to wear a hat. But I wanted to join in so decided on a fascinator. I didn't want to splash out on buying something I'm never likely to wear again, so made one from a plastic headband, a few feathers, some felt and some suffolk puffs and buttons.
I made my buttonhole in much the same way. Thank heavens for glue guns.
Don't you like my model? I fear that I won't look anywhere near as cute.
