I'm making these purple feather fascinators for the bridesmaids and groomsmaid. I'm pretty happy with how the first one turned out, since I've never attempted anything like this before! I tend to make big messes with glue, so I decided to sew everything together. The feathers are individually hand-sewn onto a black felt oval backing. The feathers cover the felt completely, and the felt helps the fascinator keep its shape. I sewed an alligator clip onto the other side of the felt -- this should hold in everyone's hair no matter what style they wear.
The base color of the peacock feather matches the bridesmaids' dresses pretty well, and the accent feathers should go nicely with the varying shades of purple in their bouquets.
Here's what it looks like on a head. The girls are all brunette, but I only have a blonde head at my disposal.
