in this instructable i will show you how to make a beautiful 1920's style feather headband.

combined with a flapper dress it will make the perfect outfit for the next swing-party, halloween, karneval or whenever you want to look fabolous.

here it goes:

Step 1: you will need

- a rest of black fabric
- 30 cm of black shiny rooster feathers sewed onto a band, i bought mine on ebay just like here
- 5 or 6 peacock tail feather ends
- sequin in colors matching the feathers
- elastic band that goes well with your feathers and beads, i was lucky and found a really beautifull one with black and golden stripes.
- needles and black thread, sewing machine (optional)
very nice!
Cute...and very interesting vintage tidbit about the gelatin sequins! <br> <br>Now I have a purpose for the peacock feathers I've hung on to for years :-)
