Romantic headpiece decorated with ribbons, toys or zippers
Fascinators are a fashionable way to crown an outfit. They are easy and fast to make and they require little material. Perfect to make from satin and lace ribbons, fabric scraps, small toys, plastic flowers and so on. Make different styles, colors and sizes to suit any outfit you might wear! Suitable also for short haired girls :)

You have such pretty light colored hair, that at first glance all I saw was this silver coil coming out of your head. I was like, Robot brains??? So I clicked on your pic. and actually looked at what I was seeing and was very surprised. This is really pretty. You have such a pretty, feminine little doll face. You look gorgeous in this! *jealousy*
