1.) Cut the sq. yd. of fabric in half.
*This pattern is for a Cleopatra headdress and requires some crochet knowledge!
Instructions:1.) Assemble materials.
2.) Crochet strands the same color as doily.
3.) Run crocheted strands along the circumference.
When the doily is on your head, the strands along your bangs should reach to just above the eyebrows. The rest of the strands should be about shoulder length.
4.) Glue or sew on pea-sized metallic beads to the top and bottom of each strand.
5.) Scatter more beads at varying heights along the longer strands.
6.) Glue/sew on more beads to the top of the headpiece in symmetrical radiating patterns.
*When you wear this headpiece, make sure you have a lot of bobbypins. If you don't, your headpiece will go spinning off your head. You'll need plenty of pins to hold the top in place, but you should also pin down some of the strands bordering your face. Otherwise, in mid-dance, you may end up with your mouth or eyes full of beads.
Drawstring Zill Bag
*This costume item was made by me, so tell me what you think!
This item does call for some manual sewing ability, and is made for smaller zills (about 2 in.), but it can be modified for large zills.
1.) Assemble materials.
