Photo Shoot with Bliss Hair and our fascinators!

This week has been very exciting, we have had our first professional photo shoot with gorgeous models for our embroidered fascinators!
My friend Nick, owns Bliss Hair in Nottingham, and this week we got together with the beautiful Hannah and Philipa (normally stylists!) and Sarah (Head Stylist in the salon) to style the hair and make-up.
Philipa and Hannah were so natural in front of the camera, and I'm sure you'll agree the photo's look fabulous!
I am so pleased with the results and would like to thank everyone involved so much! And hope they enjoyed the bottles of Rose I left them :))
The photo's have been edited and added to my listings in my Folksy Shop and updated my website.
The Stargazer Lilly fascinator, was only just finished the night before, the petals are completed created by free machine embroidery....
We had some fun at the end with some fantastically fun wigs.... but the girls still look gorgeous!!!
To see the full range of fascinators, check out my Folksy Shop, and check out BlissHair website and Facebook page as well!

A productive weekend!

After last weekend in Dorset with the Kingcombe Group, I felt inspired to finished my stargazer lily free machine embroidered fascinator.... and I'm really pleased with the finished result!
 The feather and wired crystal stamens were fiddly, but I think it was worth it.
 I've also finished this weekend, my dusty pink flowered fascinator with birdcage veil

and suffolk puffs with pearls and crystals on the back. 
 I have been busy making vintage lace garters as well..... as you can see they are all different... and can be personalised with a secret message embroidered to the inside... check out my Folksy Shop for more details.
 I think this is my favourite this time...Cotton lace made on old Nottingham Lace looms in Nottingham with "something blue" ribbon bow and diamante heart...
 and my new "handmade by" label.
