New Fascinators.

These cute little fascinators are made with a trio of recycled fabrics plus some veiling for added quirky glamour.

I`ve finished them with a vintage button and a tiny cameo button. I found the cameo buttons in a craft shop and couldn`t resist them. I think they give just the right vintagey touch to the fascinators.

These two are made with vintage tartans topped with some lovely Loire silk furnishing fabric recycled from a sample book. I only have a tiny piece of each colour, just enough to make each fascinator unique.

The little fascinators are now available in Miss Katie Cupcake, Cockburn Street, Edinburgh.

Owl Brooches

Here are this week`s owls. I thought they looked quite sweet perched in my apple tree.

They are made from recycled tweed with felt wings and blanket- stitched feathers. I love embroidering their beaks and little claws. Their shell button eyes are also recycled from some button-covered cushions; a lucky find in my favourite charity shop!

My little owls are probably still my favourite brooches to make- no two are alike and I`m never quite sure how they`re going to turn out. They seem to take on their own wee personalities as they are being made.
