Cute as a button :)
With all those fascinators popping up wherever you go, how can one still have a unique one-of-a-kind look?! Well… by making your own of course and not by use of feathers but by use of buttons. YES! All those buttons you saved of off old clothes which you thought might come in handy for a future project have found their use.

    Grab the pattern pieces and put right sides together. Place the ends of the elastic cord on the ‘circle marks’ of both fabric layers with the cord tucked in between. Sew but leave a gap to make sure you can turn right side out.

    Turn right side out and sew up the gap at the bottom. I used ladder stitch as its almost invisible.
