Heartfelt thanks to RhondaDesigns for introducing me to Suffolk puffs, and for generously suggesting this for the Craft Party Project contest.
All instructions are printed on the fabric. The only requirements are the fabric, scissors, a needle, and some green thread. Sewing machine, embroidery floss, beads for embellishment are all optional. __________ You cut out the pieces on the solid lines, and begin by making the Suffolk puffs/yo-yos of the circular pieces, finishing them so the florets are on the top. Then arrange them as you choose in the designated area on the headband/sash, and attach by applique around the outer edge, or by a stitch through the center of the rosette, finishing with a knot or a bead, if you like. Then stitch up the headband/sash, gather the ends, stitch up the ties, and stitch the ties over the gathered ends of the main piece. Et voila! A band of flowers for your hair, or for the waist of your favorite little girl's dress.
