Did you make daisy chain garland crowns when you were young? I remember daisies growing prolifically in the fields and along the sides of roads, but never did turn them into a garland. Those were the days before (way before) Google, so I never knew how. Here’s a Wikihow tutorial that I found. It looks pretty easy. Maybe this is the year to try it…
Gina’s new ensemble features a cotton print filled with daisies. The colors are casual with a feeling of being out in the country.
Of course my original idea was to make Gina a daisy chain garland for her hair, but the daisies were too large and over powering for this delicate miss, so I went with a single daisy and ribbon to make a hair tie. I like this look much better.
I found this speckled porcelain sprinkling can at a thrift store and snatched it up. It is the perfect accessory for this ensemble, don’t you think?
Gina can also hold her bouquet of daisies separately.
I found the charm for Gina’s necklace in my stash–a little sprinkling can with a heart! Seriously, how perfect is this charm for this ensemble!
I knit Gina’s “light as a feather” mohair cardigan to fall slightly below the waistline of her drop-waist styled dress. I picked up the colorful pastels in the dress print to embroider a set of mirrored image floral motifs on the bottom corners of the sweater.
Gina’s “Daisy Chain” ensemble will be available tonight, March 30, 2016 at 7:00 pm, CST. Check the “Shop What’s New” page at cindyricedesigns.com.
