I got the idea for this feather hair decoration from Chic on a Shoestring by Mary Jane Baxter. I actually saw the project in the book absolutely ages ago and I have been searching for the right feathers for a while. I wanted feathers in neutral colours but you wouldn't believe how hard it is to find them! I eventually found some when I was browsing John Lewis haberdashery on Friday. So I was finally able to make the feather hair decoration this weekend. I wanted the piece to have a vintage style so I sewed on a pearl button and I think that the feathers themselves have a certain vintage quality.
