Continue working pattern from the beginning of  2nd petal 3 more times for a total of 5 petals.
·   After 5th petal is completed ending with last Slipstitch – Cut yarn fasten off leaving 2” tail - Slip loose end through the center of your Magic Circle moving it to the back of your work
  • Pull loose end of Magic Circle to close up the center - Pearl can be added at this time as you pull the center closed - String a single pearl into the center of each posy with jewelry wire twist & trim the wire then place tiny amount of permanent fabric glue to secure.
  • Tie both loose ends together, trim off excess - secure with a dot of fabric glue

Arrange & Attach “Pearl & Purl Posies” onto headband with a dot of hot glue.
Cut 3 small matching color circles of felt,  hot glue circles to the underside of flower sandwiching the headband between the two.


Optional: Pearl & Purl Posies can also be fashioned into detachable hair clips, with small metal alligator clip attached to the back of posy with felt hot glued over bottom prong or slip onto Bobby Pin
