Step 1: Requirements
Needle and matching thread
Mother of pearl effect small sequins (not the meium size -Tiny ones)
Step 2: Cut
To be on the safe side cut out a paper template with scallopes on both sides to the measurement of the scarf.Place it over the scarf and cut the scallop around the edge on your scarf piece.(This just adds fulness of your flowers)
Step 3: Circle cutting
A few curvy cut here and there would be fine.Place them over the felt and cut around it.If you like deep looking petals,cut deeper
scallops.If you want a subtle look,cut shallow scallops.I like a mixture of both.
For a 39'' length scarf you need 12 flowers.But I made one extra flower to make the scarf longer.
Now cut out 13 of each size.After cutting them I shaped them a little bit on the edges.
The largest petal size is 4 1/2'' in width.The smallest petal is 1 1/2'' in width
Step 4: Assemble the flowers
From the bottom pull very tight ,you will see this gathers your flower up.(Pic 3 4 and 5)
Fold your flower in half with the gather and make another stitch right over pulling it very tight.(pic 6)Watch out !! Do not break the thread.
From the bottom fold the flower in half and make another stitch.By pulling very tight makes the gathers and forms a beautiful flower.
Tie a few strong knots,but do not cut your thread.
Step 5: Middle bud
Now stitch up from the bottom and grab that center piece at it's point.Secure it with a second stitch.Pull very tight and tie a strong and secure knot.Cut thread and your flower is completed.
Step 6: 13 flowers
Step 7: Assemble flowers on scarf
Since my scarf length was only 39'' I placed the two flowers on both ends 1 1/2 ''(on each flower) out on the scaf so that it makes the scaf longer by 3''.If you have enough material in length then you can place them on the exact end of the scarf.
Now the length of my scarf is 42''.
Once you set all 13 flowers where you like them pin only the bottom layer of each flower to the scarf.
Stitch a small,but tight circle through the bottom layer of the scarf and flower.Knot tightly .Cut the thread as you finish attaching each flower,and start new with the next flower.
