Here are three great millinery craft ideas that you can make quickly and easily: Attach a Comb Supplies: Comb Fascinator Base Thread in a Matching Colour Needle
  • Millinery Craft Projects Guide 1. Start by double threading the thread through the needle and securing it with a knot. 2. Decide which angle and position you would like to use for your fascinator base.
  • Millinery Craft Projects Guide 3. Start your stitching on the far left side, on the last tooth of the comb. Stich back and forth in order to secure the comb safely to the fascinator base. Make stiches in the opposite direction, as shown in the photo, to create a backwards letter L shape.
  • Millinery Craft Projects Guide 4. Secure the thread and tie it off. 5. Repeat the same process that you just completed, in mirror image on the right side of the comb. You can also use a glue gun to attach a strip of petersham over the top of your comb to cover all of the stiches.
  • Millinery Craft Projects Guide Attach a Veil Supplies: Fascinator base meter of veiling A Needle Matching thread 1. Start by double threading the needle and securing the thread together with a knot.
  • Millinery Craft Projects Guide 2. Decide the length of the veil you desire, which will allow you to determine how much veiling you will need to cut. 3. Gather the veiling in the centre and stitch it together to secure. Or, use the raw edge if it is shortened. 4. Once you have gathered all of the veiling together, you can centre it on the headpiece and choose the right angle. When it looks right, stitch it onto the base.
