Cut your felt into 3″ circles. You’ll need 2 circles for each bloom. For smaller blooms, use 2″ circles and half the length of the strip (cut one long strip in half)
Since lace is so lightweight, it is really easy to ruffle it with your sewing machine without a special foot. All you have to do is turn the stitch length to the max and send the lace through. If you want it to ruffle more than that, hold your thread as the lace goes through. That will mess up the tension and cause gathers!
*Make sure your iron is on low heat.

Oh, I love it Kate! Thanks for the tutorial! I’m not sure whether I’ll use it for making a crown for myself (!:P) but it’ll definitely be a great idea for styling up some tshirts and cardigans!
It’s going on mg to-do-list for next sewing / DIY projects :D
It’s so pretty! I’m probably not brave enough (to wear the full crown but I think I could rock the single flower.
Love it! I want to make matching for me and my daughter for mid summer, which is really big here in Sweden. Thanks for sharing :)
I love it
