Accessorising a Baby Dress

Few Daisies added a lot of cuteness factor to this already fun summer dress for a baby. Zizi offered to help out and model the dress for Yarnilicious. :)

The daisies are easy to make and can be added to anything you like as embellishments- a bag, a dress, hats, or even made into a hair clip !

Here is the pattern -

Ch 3, sl st in first ch to form loop.
ch 1, 8 sc in loop, sl st in first sc.
* ch 4, sc in second ch from hook and in next 2 ch, sl st in next sc, (Petal made) repeat from * 7 more times with last sl st in same sc as joining. 8 Petals made.
Finish off.

To attach to a dress use a similar color thread to sew on. If your crochet stitches are too close, it will make the petals to fold in. One way to correct it is spraying some starch on it and ironing.

Close up of the DAISIES -

Enjoy !
