I am giving 100% credit to Tea Rose Home, but I found her instructions hard to read since they were interspersed with huge photos, so I'll retype them here with my trial and error notes.
- Small silk flower (I pulled one apart to make two)
- 5" diameter circle of fabric
- 2" diameter circle of cardboard
- Fabric for wrist band - wrist circumference+2" x 3.5"
- Velcro (or a snap!)
- Fusible fleece (I used plain old fleece) - mine was 7.5" x 1.5 "
- Glue gun
- Sewing machine
- Fold fabric rectangle in half, wrong sides out. Place/iron fusible fleece on one side and sew around permimeter, leaving a 3" gap along the long open end.
- Turn the fabric inside out and sew around the perimeter from the outside, creating a pretty top stitch. I think it would be cool to use a contrasting thread but I was too lazy to change out what was already in the machine.
- Sew the silk flower on to the center of the strap.
- Sew velcro at ends. I had snaps on hand from another project and was -- again -- too lazy to look for my velcro.
- To make the pin cushion, sew a running stitch around the circumference of the fabric circle. Tighten it and insert stuffing, then put in the cardboard circle before pulling it tight and sewing it shut.
- Hot glue the pin cushion to the flower. Insert a pearl head pin and commence photo shoot.
Next time I'll have to include my nasty mini glue gun in the photo of materials. It's coated in glued-on dog hair from when I used to sit on the dirty carpet in our old apartment and get crafty. I now try to stick to the dining room table.
