How to Make Pumpkin Seeds Bouquet

Crafts from natural materials are perhaps the most favorite form of creativity in children of all ages. Working with natural materials retains heat and hands of the master and always carries a positive energy. Very beautiful crafts can be made from seashells, acorns, chestnuts, dried leaves, etc. But the most original, and at the same time easy to manufacture work can be obtained from the usual pumpkin seeds.

Pumpkin seeds – this is an easily accessible natural material to work with which it is possible at any time of the year. Pumpkin seeds can produce a wide variety of original crafts, such as floral bouquet. I bring to your attention a master class on making flowers of pumpkin seeds. These flowers turn out very beautiful and original, and most importantly – they are easy to make and do not require great physical and financial costs.

Required Material:

1. Pumpkin seeds;
2. Peas;
3. Silicone adhesive;
4. PVA glue;
5. Floral tape;
6. Hessian;
7. Wooden sticks;
8. cardboard sheet;
9. Jute yarn;
10. The compass;
11. Simple pencil;
12. Scissors;
13. Acrylic paint white;
14. Brush;
15. Ruler.

Before you begin, you must treat the burlap so that it becomes rigid and does not crumble. To this mix of PVA glue and water in a proportion of 50 to 50 and fully put in the sack solution. After that, the fabric should be dried and ironed. While dried burlap, let us direct manufacturer flowers. The basis for the colors to be a circle of cardboard. Using a compass draw a circle on the cardboard with a diameter of 6 cm., And cut it. Now take the pumpkin seeds and using a silicone adhesive or glue “Moment”, pasted them in a circle. Paste the seeds so that their sharp edge was on top. The first row of seeds prepared.

Now just glue the seeds of the second row. Sunflower seeds in the second row should be staggered and overlapping with respect to the first row. Also, do the third and fourth rows of seeds.

The middle of the flower reserve not glued.

Now we turn over our flowered on the back side and glue have to this side of a row of seeds.

Since our bouquet will consist of three colors, then make three for flowers. Pumpkin seeds, which we used for the flower petals are not very beautiful yellowish tint, so we using white acrylic paint, paint them white. We leave flowers alone until they are completely dry. Until the paint is dry, we do not lose time in vain and will prepare two cardboard parts: a circle with a diameter of 6 cm, and lepestochek, the height of 7 cm, and width – 4 cm… The carton blanks are put on the pressed and dried burlap and encircle their contours. Circles will need to cut 3 pieces, and petals – 6 pieces.Next a burlap circle glue on the reverse side of a flower preform. And along the contour cut petals from burlap, we stuck jute thread. And now it’s time to prepare for the stems of flowers. To stem can be used straight branches of the tree, we took advantage of chopsticks for sushi. Take floristic tape green and completely wrapped with it every wand. If you do not have floral tape, you can use the corrugated paper. We make three identical stems. Now we collect our flowers. In the middle of the flower Do the workpiece hole and insert the stem into it ready. In the middle of the flower glue yellow peas, which for strength from above abundantly watered with white glue.

Also, instead of peas can be used dried corn kernels, buckwheat or grains of pepper.

And finally left to attach the petals to our flowers. Fasten them using floral tape or corrugated paper.

That’s all – flowers ready! It remains to put our bouquet in a vase. This original bouquet decorates any space, especially natural corner in the school or in kindergarten. Good luck and success!

How to sew a bright summer dress for girls “Strawberry ice cream”

Soon, many will go to such a long-awaited vacation! Someone close to the sea, some to the country! And to this wonderful time, of course, we need to thoroughly prepare! We always want that to our girls look the most beautiful and fashionable, and with it, their clothing was easy and convenient, and the tissue from which it was sewn genuine.
I assure you, create, sew the perfect dress their girls to the power of many! And I invite you to a workshop on self-tailoring summer beach dresses for girls of any age! In such a nice light dress can make a leisurely stroll along the sandy beach or go boldly into a small sea voyage on a boat!
And how to spend days of fun at sea under such a bright hot sun without a hat? I propose to make a simple partial scarf with elastic in the kit to our dress.

Let’s get started:
Required Material:
The basic cotton fabric. I chose this merry pretty popular cotton charming Morozhenko.
Fabric companion cotton, for some items and decor of our dress.
Thread cotton fabric tone.
Children’s T-shirt for making patterns.
Elastic narrow 0.5 cm and 1.5 cm wide.
Tape measure.
Sewing machine.
Iron.
Scissors.
Safety pins.
Tracing paper.
Crayon or marker for the tissue.
Now it is a very fashionable dress with such a romantic flounce at the shoulders. It’s something we are going to sew. Dress, in my opinion, is not difficult, but very interesting and spectacular! Imagine how charmingly will sway in the wind shuttlecock. Also, we will have an asymmetrical bottom and unpretentious ruffles.

1. Construction of a pattern
Since my workshop is intended for all those who are unprofessional sews clothes, I decided to give you not finished the pattern and not the one that will have a long and hard to build, and an option to many easily sewed a dress their baby. So, take the baby t-shirt that sits perfectly on the child (preferably not too tight), folded in half, back inside, draw out a pencil. Note the line of the armhole and neck. We get here a dress before.

Now we pattern. Pattern we will be unified for both forehand and backrest product (of course, to some extent, this is not entirely true, but it is possible, most importantly do not sew the back to back, let it be a little loose, especially since the idea model allows, then armhole not will pull). I traced the side, slightly extending it for the convenience of the child, he said the waistline, neck draw a new line, as we will cut with flounce. Bottom draws a semicircle inside – it before, outside – it will back the product. Cut out the pattern, that’s what happens.

For this the pattern to create basic patterns before and back our future dresses.

2. Cutting (Items proposed in accordance with the size of the child’s growth on 98 cm., Depending on the variation of parts dimensions can be modified).
Prior – 1 pc.
The back – 1 pc.
2 parts of the shuttle base fabric by 70 cm long. And a width of 9 cm.
2 parts of the shuttle companion tissue 70 cm. And a width of 10 cm.
1 part for the lower part before the excised semicircle and a length of 50 cm, a width at its widest point to 8 cm.
2 armholes piping forehand and backrest (cutting obliquely) and a length of 21 cm and a width of 4 cm, including allowances.
Gum for the shuttle, narrow, 60 cm long and gussets, wide and 8-10 cm long.
1 gusset piece for a length of 40 cm, a width of 25 cm (volume 48 cm head).
1 item for registration gum 10 cm long and 4 cm wide.
2 strips 70 cm long and 90 cm wide and 2 cm, for decoration and dresses the bottom gusset.
Sam all the slices and dress hem – 1.0 cm.
Impose our patterns on the fabric is pinned in several places, so as not to move out draw out the pattern, cut out.

3. Tailoring dresses
So, to start all the details. The lower part of the flounces, the lower part of the forehand and the decor strips (for the length of two sides) is treated with role-seam. If you do not have such an opportunity, and bends over the edge.
First of all, I would like to draw the lower part of the prepayment. Take the lower part of the strip and for decoration, these parts on upper edge, namely paving two parallel lines at a low tension of the upper thread, contractible yarns on the lower pulling simultaneously (in this case obtained assembly). Shear and grind 2 parts before. Remove the padded for assembly seams. Allowances press out up, we make fun decorative stripes on the front part, as in the photo, and at its center along the entire length. Remove the padded on the strip for assembly seams. That’s what we do: in front of little shorter dresses back, and this simple effervescent bottom
Now just issue the backrest down, folded the allowance at 1 cm, ironed.

We perform the side seams of our products. Gut-wrenching, iron out the seams

We proceed to the processing of armholes. Every piping folded along the right side out. Folded piping pin and stitch shear armholes. Oversized cut close to the weld line, the piping wrench on the wrong side edges, armhole defer 0.5 cm.

Grind short sections shuttlecocks, their iron out. Impose shuttlecock from the main tissue of a shuttlecock companion tissue. Determine the middle shuttle and before dress pin up to a distance of 1.5 cm from the top to the gum. Grind down, leaving room for threading elastic bands.

Our future shuttlecock. We put the gum, collect and distribute evenly. Zastrachivaem place threading gum. Our dress is ready!

4. Sewing scarves
Take a rectangle of fabric for our scarves, overcast edge. Tuck hem around the perimeter of the inside-out, ironed. Take a decorative strip of cloth, to pin up on the edge of the front face of our scarves.
Take the box to gum, long sections of grind, gut-wrenching, gum paste. We fix and stitched around the edges.

Now we collect our scarf on short sections (I prefer the Christmas tree), by inserting between our gum, and the top anchoring, ie stitched by. Our scarf is ready!

Here’s a set we turned! By the beach season ready! Sea met!
