A little daisy book
Here is my daisy poem
On the banks of the Seine
Daisies dance and squabble
Swaying in the breeze;
Praying for some sun.
Prim faces cloaked up at night:
Several sun bleached white-creased clothes
Interlocked one by one
Unfold as rays shine down
So bees and butterflies can perch
And rest, singing their summer song.
To make one yourself:
Cut out nine equal sized squares
open out and turn over
Then fold in half straight across
Fold in half in the other direction then open out
Open out each square. Shape each petal using a card template
You can colour in the centre of the square yellow, if you just want to make it a flower
Fold each square like this
Glue the petals together on the quarters of the square which have no creases
Craft 48/365 Daisy Chain
It was mufti-day on Friday for my daughter. She wore a daisy chain in her hair and had lots of comments from teachers. I found the little chain of daisies at a Christmas market and you can buy extra daisies to make really long chains.
I decided to have a go at crochet using some remnants of wool and odd buttons. I started off with making a magic ring and 8 dc around it. Then I made the petals by crocheting seven chain and linking this chain back to the dc in the magic ring. The flowers were individually attached to a long chain of bright green wool. Considering I had no crochet pattern to follow, my daughter was pleased with the result!
