Now that you have your skirt done it is time for the finishing touches.

First - Take you 1” thick ribbon and cut it about 1 yard in length and weave it into the waist band of the skirt which is Rnd 3. You will want to sew the ends of the ribbon so they do not fray. I made my bow to tie in the back, Feel free to have your tie on the side or front.

 

Second – Making the Flower appliqués. Size H hook

Large Ribbon flower- In a 25 mm ring *1 SC, CH 4, Rep from * 9 times, SL to 1st SC made, Tie off hide ribbon end. (Make 2 Blue and 1 brown)

Small Ribbon Flower – CH 3, In 1st CH made 9 SC, SL to 1st SC made, Tie off hide Ribbon.

Large leaves – DMC Floss 3348 Size D hook, (Make 3)

Base: CH 12

Rnd 1: SC, HDC, 2 DC, 3 TR, 3 DC, In next sp (3 HDC, CH 3, 3 HDC), working along backside of base CH’s: 3 DC, 3 TR, 2 DC, HDC, SC, Tie off, leave a long tail, You will use this to sew onto skirt.

 

Small Leaf – DMC Floss 3348 Size D hook, Make three.

Base: CH 11

Rnd 1: SC, HDC, 2 DC, 2 TR, 2 DC, SC, SL, Tie off, Leave long tail, you will use this to sew onto skirt.

 

Stem – DMC Floss 3346, (2 different sizes)

For the stems I have two different sizes. CH however long you need, according to your chosen layout, and you SC down you chain, tie off and leave long tail for sewing onto skirt.

 

How to sew on applique:

Lay out your arrangement how you like and pin your stems in place. Take you tapestry needle and attach to the tail ends of your appliques. And sew your stems in place, I went up the middle.

Then arrange your leaves, attach tapestry needle to tail end and sew around the perimeters.

Then arrange you Flowers and sew them down with a regular sewing needle and thread.

Lastly Take your white buttons and sew them into the centers of the large ribbon flowers.

Now you have a Skirt you child is going to love.
