Dress-Up Flower Bracelet

My cousin's little girl loves to dress up so I got her a pretty skirt and some dress-up accessories for Christmas. I came up with this little flower bracelet...

- fabric flower (from a bag of flower remnants)
- pearl button
- pink ribbon (leftover from that Damask Drawstring Bag)
- a scrap of elastic

First, stick the back of the pearl button through the center hole in the flower (flowers that come on stems will have a center hole through the petals).

Then sew the button to the center of the piece of ribbon. The ribbon length should be the same as a wrist's circumference.

Sew the elastic to both ends of the ribbon, forming a circle. This will let the child slip the flower bracelet on and off their wrist.

Note: the pearl button could be a choking hazard for little ones. This is not recommended for kids that like to eat their toys. Adult supervision recommended.
