That is a great idea. That go me thinking you can even do this in the center of the ring bearers pillow and the center can have a tie for the rings! Fun

I'm planning on attaching a couple of loops to the pillow so I can remove the fascinator easily.

Is this hand sewn without using any glue ? It's lovely. My Mom did all of my wedding party (6), a flower girl, her own gown, my Gramma's and my beautiful dress and veil. She started sewing right after New Year's day and sewed every day 'til Memorial Day. My Gramma, who was 79 at the time, sewed pearls onto every little flower that surrounded my cathedral length veil. She also made the cutest little pouches to hold the girl's flower arrangements. It was the greatest gift of all. Wishing you the same joy and satisfaction.
