It says Daisy Trims, and I decided it was to make a Daisy shaped flower and thought, perhaps, I'd put an old vintage beaded earring in the center and make a brooch for my sister.
So, I pulled out some felt and started on my own interpretation of how this would go together; and quite quickly, while putting in the 8 sets of darts, realized how wrong I was. I went online and found the pattern in another shop; it's simply a decoration to go on a tablecloth and the marks were not darts, but cutouts.
Then, it hit me; with all those darts bringing the edges inward, it would make a great hat for Lilly's Barbie Doll. So, I made three. It's very simple; comes together in less than 10 minutes. So, if you have a little girl in your life who loves to dress her Barbies ....
- Cut a round circle from a piece of felt between 3" to 3 1/2" across. (The bigger the circle, the floppier the hat).
- Mark a circle about 1" to 1 1/2" in the center. The will become the area that is the crown.
- Mark and sew your darts. (I simply used a ruler and marked off into 8 quadrants ... being precise is not necessary). The smaller you sew the darts, the looser the hat will fit.
- Put either a straight or decorative stitch around the edge to hold the darts down.
Embellish any way you wish. I used beads and buttons on the crown of two and just decorative stitching on the third.
May I'll make her outfits to go with them. I still have the Barbie pattern out.
