Kaffe Fassettnator

It's National Sewing Month for goodness sakes.  I've been posting my adventures on Facebook and haven't taken the time to post them here.

So, I was hanging out on the internet and found out that there is a contest to win 20 BOLTs of Kaffe Fassett fabric.  Mind Blown.  The catch; make a fascinator using KFC fabrics.  That's like dangling Kaffe Fassett fabric before my eyes and daring me to make a quilt.  My idea of a good time....times infinity.

So here it is.
 This was kind of like making your favorite cookie recipe and throwing in all your most desired extra goodies.  Baked to perfection.

 The double, tulle ruffle was a scrap left over from making a Can Can dress last year.  It was the exact right amount of pale blue and hot pink for a fun frill.

The reason I like to save EVERYTHING.
This photo shows the beaded button that I made.  There was an article recently in Threads Magazine about this and it brought me to tears.  What a perfect marriage of crafts.

I told my sweet husband what I was up to and he said something about moving to the garage to make room for fabric.  How I will miss him.
