To top off the costume I am going to stick her in a pot (padded of course) Easy peasy...
What you will need:
green outfit (sweatsuit, dress, or shirt)
1/8 yard green felt- found at any fabric store. I bought mine from Hobby Lobby.
petal pattern (below)
Flower- I love the flowers at Hobby Lobby. That is where I bought this one. Never pay full price, wait till they are 50% off!
brown beanie or hat
The flower cost me $3 and the felt was .60 cents! If you have everything else already, thats a cheap costume! Have fun!
Click on the petal pattern and print. I downsized it to about 30% , so just play around with it until it is the size you like.
Using the petal pattern, cut out as many leaves as you like. I wanted 8 leaves, so I cut 16. I doubled them up. Then sew the leaves together. I used white thread to give the illusion of 'veins' in the leaves.
Sew the leaves onto the jacket. I overlapped my leaves for a layered look. You could also buy some bias tape or thick pretty ribbon and just make a separate 'collar' if you didn't want to sew right onto the clothing.
Hot glue some ribbon to the alligator clip. Then hot glue onto the flower.
Clip onto the brown beanie or hat.
...and just for fun I found some matching ribbon and attached them to the pants.
