Project

All Dressed Up: Flower Bouquet

Make a sunny bundle of daisies, tulips, and sunflowers. These friends (from left), Sophia, age 8, Emily, 7, Angelika, 7, and Sarah, 7, wear felt-petal collars and pollen headdresses topped with stickers. Velour dresses and bright tights bring it all together without a single stitch.

Materials

  • 28-gauge floral wire
  • Headband
  • Fusible web
  • Iron
  • Felt
  • Fabric glue

Steps

    To make the headband, cut 28-gauge floral wire into eight 4- to 5-inch pieces; top each with two dot stickers. Wrap a headband in floral tape a third of the way up one side; add a wire piece, and secure by wrapping its end. Repeat, evenly spacing wires.

  2. Step 2

    For the petal collars, iron fusible web to felt square. Trace petal shape onto web side; cut out. Place petal on second piece of felt, web side down, with a petal-length piece of floral wire sandwiched between the layers. Iron layers together, and cut out. Repeat to make 5 to 10 petals. Cut a 36-inch length of 1-inchwide double-fold bias tape. Beginning 10 inches from tape's end, insert petals into the fold; secure with fabric glue.
