0.diydaisyapplique_introphotoIt seems like an age since I posted I posted about Daisy-Print Inspiration here on the blog…but yes, this print is still trending amongst street style and retailers lately. I DIY’d an oversized sweatshirt in this neat pattern, and though it may be a little out of season by now, you can always do this on a more lightweight material. diydaisyapplique_done2Plus you can customize the flowers exactly how you want! Here’s how:

You Need:

diydaisyapplique_materialswhite felt  /  yellow felt  /  fabric scissors  /  marking chalk  /  needle and yellow thread  /  Heat n Bond  /  iron & ironing board  /  Daisy Pattern PDF  /  scissors  /  pins

How To:     diydaisyapplique_step1 1. Print the Daisy Pattern PDF on your printer at home (no scaling). Cut out the pattern pieces.

2. Trace the flower piece onto the white felt, and the center onto the yellow felt. Repeat for as many flowers as you’d like, and cut out.

3. Hand-baste the yellow centers to the white flowers. This will secure them properly.

I chose to cover only the front of the sweatshirt with the flowers, and added about 3 per sleeve since they were so large.diydaisyapplique_done1diydaisyapplique_done2diydaisyapplique_done3
