A while ago I bought some feathers sewn on a band from ebay. I get most of my feathers this way (either from China or Australia, whoever is cheaper for the colour I'm interested in) as the cost less than half of the price I pay in a store here. For the ones I used here I paid 6 Euros per meter!
|Yes, this was the best picture of the closure. ANnd yes, I sneezed after taking this pic. ;)|
Just cut a ribbon that is long enough to tie around the neck (with a nice bow). Cut the feather band wide enough to wrap around your neck plus 1cm on each side. I folded the ends under and sewed one band each to the top and bottom of the ribbon. That's it!
A lot of oomph for rather little work, right?
