Measure waistband and add two inches using the ½ inch white elastic.
Sew ends together to create a circle waistband.
Measure and cut strips of tulle. You will want enough to completely go around your waistband when tied on. We cut one strip for each group of the following colors: light pink, dark pink, lavender, and purple. Our skirt had 43 groups. Each tie was cut to measure 3 inches by 54 inches.
When strips of tulle are cut, gather in one hand to make a group (one each of each color). To easily tie the groups of tulle onto the elastic we found this easy way. Step into the elastic waistband. Pull it up just past your knees and sit in a comfortable position. Fold a group of tulle strips in half and lay over the top of the elastic loop. Bring the loose ends back under the elastic, and up and through the loop. Pull down to tighten. Repeat this process until the elastic if fully covered and you have reached the fullness you desire. You can use any color combination you desire, and any amount of strips in each group of tulle strips.
When complete, add felt flowers to waistband using hot glue, and dot here and there with small Petaloo™ flowers.
To Make Felt Flowers
Using pattern provided cut flower petals from all colors of felt.
Using a needle and thread, stitch along the bottom of the felt to create petals, making your felt strip as long as you like to reach your desired fullness. Secure well with a knot at the end.
Hot glue rhinestones into the center when done and accent with Stickles™ to add “glitz”. Let dry.
Cut out leaves from green felt using the pattern provided.
To Make Headband
Cut a strip of lavender felt to cover your headband. Cover one side of it with double-sided tape.
Peel of the backing and carefully center it on the headband, pressing in place as you peel. Wrap one side around the edge, then the other. If any trimming is needed, do it before you do the wrap on the last side. Round off the edges cutting it close to the bottom of the band.
You may stitch it for extra hold if you like.
Hot glue felt flowers in place on the top of the headband. We made ours off center a bit. Add the leaves where you see fit. Fill extra little holes or areas with Petaloo™ flowers.
