“Daisy Chain” Garlands

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.
