I still have leftover materials from the mini top hat I've made earlier. I made this fascinator/cocktail hat with them.
My friend posted this mini hat on Facebook the other day. I really want to make my own. I bought a felt mini hat from Michael's for $1.80 (with a 40% off coupon), and a feather pick for $1.99 (it has a assortments of feathers on it, so it's cheaper than buying three packages of feathers.) I also bought 1/3 yard of green satin from Hobby Lobby for $1. I already have some scrap lace and a buckle at home. So I made mine for less than $5. The original hat costs $163.80, so technically I saved $158.30. Mine (on the right) is not as perfect as the original though.
Usually this is the time of the year that I throw out another batch of broken plastic folders. I happen to have a broken yellow folder and a broken gray folder, so I cut them into circles and made a Pacman necklace.
I have a vintage dress shirt with French cuffs, but the fabric is very flimsy and ordinary cuff links often fall out. I don't like fancy cuff links anyway since they often get damaged from banging on tables or keyboards. I made a pair of cuff links with four plastic buttons. Simply join a pair of buttons with a large jump ring and there you have a cuff link.
