Introduction

Make a sunny bundle of daisies, tulips, and sunflowers. These friends wear felt-petal collars and "pollen" headdresses topped with stickers. Velour dresses and bright tights bring it all together without a single stitch.

materials

  • Headband

  • 28-gauge floral wire

  • Dot stickers

  • Floral tape

  • Iron

  • Felt

  • Fusible web

  • 1-inch wide double-fold bias tape

  • Fabric glue

steps

  1. 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. 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-inch wide double-fold bias tape. Beginning 10 inches from tape's end, insert petals into the fold; secure with fabric glue.
