I've used the same technique as my necktie brooch to make my headpiece, only this time adding thrifted lace (10c op shop) and a button (10c op shop) to my choice of necktie ($1 op shop), which interprets a touch of vintage to my fascinator. I've used a glue gun to attach my finished flower to a plain headband.
Being that I'm 9 months pregnant, I shall not be trotting off to the races this year with my new headpiece, I have instead entered it into a 'Hats and Headwear' online craft contest, and put it aside to wear for a later date.

I'll be saying a brief goodbye for now, as my family and I welcome our newest edition into the world next week. I'll continue to plug away at facebook and instagram until the little one arrives, and will be back to blog writing once we're home and settled.
On a final note, I'd also like to acknowledge two great writers for nominating Recycled Fashion in recent awards; Down to Earth Mother for a Leibster Award and Kindness By Design for a Sisters Are Blogging It For Themselves Award. If you are not following either of these two blogs yet, then I encourage you do; both will inspire you to embrace a greener, ethical yet fashionable life!
Thanks for reading and continuing to follow Recycled Fashion, you know I appreciate it.
