Making up.

Sew in all ends.

To make the flowers, roll up the cast on edge with the ws facing inward. As you roll, sew the base in place until you reach the end of the cast on. Sew through the base a few more times and secure.

 

Measure out 75cm of wire and cut. Using the flower tape, fold over the top of the wire and then start to wrap the tape around the wire pulling diagonally down to cover the wire. When you reach the end fold the tape back up over the end of the wire.

Place the wire around your head to make sure it is the right size for you and twist the overlapping wire to secure into place.

Place your leaves and flowers around the front of the wire to make sure you get them in the right position. When you are ready secure the leaves onto the wire by sewing across the wire.

Then work in the same way to secure the flowers into place.
