It’s that time of year when wildflower bouquets can often be found on our kitchen tables. If you’re the type that likes to go out and collect some pretty flowers to display throughout your house, you need to make one of these! It takes less than an hour to make plus it’s super cute and helpful!
What you need:
-3/4″ Wooden dowel or two branches of equal length (I cut my dowel into two 14″ sections)
-Two small pieces of leather
-Two types of fabric
-Hot glue gun
How to make it:
-Cut one 14.5″ x 12.5″ section out of each of the fabrics.
-Fold in and iron 1/4″ on each of the smaller sides of the fabric pieces and sew in place with a straight stitch.
-Place the fabric pieces together with the fronts facing each other (The new seams you just sewed should be facing outwards.) and sew them together 1/4″ in on the bottom long side.
-Then cut a 5″ x 8″ chunk from the top of both pieces.
-Cut a tiny slit in the lower corners of that rectangle so you can fold in and iron a 1/4″ seam around that area to prevent from fraying. Sew in place.
-The top of the “straps” should not have a seam sewn yet. Fold down a 1/4″ of fabric on each of the four straps and iron in place.
-Then fold this down and pin in place. Make sure that your dowel or stick will be able to go through that loop once it is sewn in place. Sew straight across the bottom of that fold.
-Use hot glue gun to attach leather to handles. (One line of glue on one end, roll tightly to dowel, and then another line of glue at the other end of the leather piece.)
-Slide fabric onto the dowel. I used a dab of hot glue on the inside edge of the fabric to keep the straps in place.
-Go pick flowers!
