Great job on both. I like all the details like the pens in the pocket or the fluffy top.

Smeddley, I like the idea of the tea time before Christmas. My favorite are the Jack mug rugs and pot holders.

Quantumphysica, glad to know both your health and finances are getting better. I like the embroidered bookmarks. Are you the lucky owner of one of these tempting, fantastic embroidery machines? The minions bracelet is the best.

Butterflyangel, did you paint the buildings on these paddles? They look great.

Trinalocakary, I have no idea who the plague doctor is but he seems to be living a dangerous life. You're going to have the best Halloween this year.

I would suggest using the thicker florist wire. I never saw them come undone but I always twist the wires in the stem together or a couple wires tightly around the others. The worst that happened is getting a bit out of shape, but it's easy to put it back in the shape you want.
It depends of the age of the child I guess. I remember doing this craft with 5 and 6 years old. I'm not sure it would stand the eager hands of a toddler.
8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Tutorial: fabric plumeria flower on: October 07, 2015 02:33:33 PM

10 minutes- a couple hours waiting time while drying- 10 minutes

Materials needed for one flower:
3'9" white florist wire (thin wire wrapped with paper) - about 9 inches for one petal
a tiny scrap of fabric - about 6 square inches
fabric glue - I used original tacky glue
white stem wrap tape- optional but will look nicer

some plastic to let your flower dry on it

How to:

Cut 5 pieces of 9" wire. Bend in half.

Wrap the middle around two fingers or around a round tube, the 2 fl oz bottle of glue works just fine.

Remove by sliding off. This is what you get.

Shape it like an oval with slightly pointy ends to create the plumeria petals. Keep the shape flat. Make 5 shapes, one for each petal. You could make any shape and flower that way.

Check the shapes are flat and touch the fabric all around the edge. A tiny space between fabric and wire is OK if you fill it with glue.
Apply fabric glue all around the edge. No need to be very neat, the glue will dry clear.
Leave it to dry completely. This might take a couple hours, depending on your weather.
Once dry, cut the fabric around the shape, thus creating a petal.
Bend the petals slightly.

Put the five petals together, overlapping a little. Twist all the wires together or just one around the others, this will create the stem. Arrange the petals evenly to create the flower.

Wrap stem wire tape around the stem.

Now, you can put it behind your ear and go dance the hula or just enjoy a tropical drink.

Lovely skirt.
It fits you very well and is well done.
