I’m starting to think that sitting glued to the couch and binge watching Sailor Moon Crystal are literally all my Sunday’s are ever going to consist of, not that I’m complaining. I actually love being a total bump on a log and watching pretty anime while I sit around crafting and just all around lounging. I don’t get a lot of opportunities to do stuff like that, or a lot of free time for that matter. I love how much watching Sailor Moon inspires me to craft and create, it’s nice to have something like that in my life that just has an automatically creative effect on me.
On the title screen of the show there’s a beautiful watercolor painting of sailor moon in profile and she’s wearing flowers in her hair and it sort of occurred to me today that that would make a beautiful hair fascinator for me to wear in my hair so I decided to create one out of felt. I’ve actually been meaning to get around to trying this technique of making felt flowers but I just never have. I’m not really a felt kind of girl, it’s been a long time coming for me to even really start experimenting with it. So the fact that it didn’t come out totally horrible was a wonderful shock for me.
It took me bloody forever to find this pic, so I really hope this link works for you guys.
Felt, pink and purple as well as tan if that’s what you’re planning to glue it to
Fastener of some kind
You don’t only have to wear this as a fascinator. I actually think that this would make a pretty cute brooch or headband accompaniment. You could even sew these onto a dress and skip the idea of it being an accessory at all. I feel like this is just going to be the week of hair accessories what with Jess coming over to work on her headband tomorrow. That is assuming that we actually get around to doing it. We have a bad habit of getting so caught up talking that nothing ever really gets done. We shall see.
Lots of Love,
