|1. Using Pattern, Cut one circle and one rectangle.
The pattern pieces can be found here.
|2. Use the hand needle and thread to sew around entire perimeter of the circle piece. Sew each stitch about 1/2” long and about 1/8” from the edge of the fabric. Do not tie the ends of the thread.|
|Another shot of step 2.|
|3.Pull the ends of the thread to ‘cinch’ the circle into a “puff”.|
|4. Tie the thread ends together while they are still tightly cinched.|
|5. Adjust the puff so that the cinched section is on the top center of the puff.|
|6. Cut one rectangle using pattern piece. Fold in half as shown and sew the open ends together. Knot the ends.|
|7.Fold the strip inside of itself like above. Make sure that the sewn ends are hidden on the inside.|
|8. Sew the open edge closed. Sew with 1/2” stitches that are about 1/8” from the edge. Don’t knot the ends.|
|9. Cut slits on the folded edge. Cut them about 1/2” apart. Be careful not to cut the thread.|
|10. Pull the threads tight to cinch the strip into a flower.|
|11. Tie the ends of thread and adjust the flower to lay flat.|
|12. Place a dab of hot glue onto the center of the “puff”.|
|13. Place the flower on top of the hot glue. Allow the glue to cool, then sew one or two stitches through both pieces and tie securely. (I’m sorry there isn’t a photo of this).|
|14. Place a dab of hot glue into the center of the flower.|
|15. Fold a couple loops (petals) over the hot glue to hide the center. This is optional depending on your preference.|
|16. If you are making a headband, cut the elastic to appropriate length. Find elastic measurements on pattern piece.
The headband measurements can be found here.
|17. Overlap the ends of elastic 1/2” and sew them together.|
|18. Turn the entire piece upside down. Place a strip of glue where the elastic will lay if you are making a headband.|
|19. Put the elastic on top of the glue. Press it firmly into place.|
|20. Cut a strip of scrap fabric that is approx 1 x 2”.|
|21. Carefully place the hot glue onto the elastic strip. Press firmly into place and trim the edges of the scrap piece to fit the head piece.|
