Crazy Daisy Pants Instructions
Designed by Cheri Carlson

These fun pants are sure to be a hit with the young woman in your life, and thanks to their multicolored pattern, she'll be able to wear them with all of her favorite shirts. We used oil cloth to create these fun flowers, giving them their bright color and making them resistant to fraying.

As with all beaded materials we do not recommend machine washing these pants. Instead, carefully hand wash or dry clean them.

Step One: Use a die cut or create a stencil to create the flower shapes. You will need 14 small flowers and 14 larger flowers in whatever colors you choose to create this bi-tonal look. Cut the flowers out of your oil cloth. Coat one side of each flower in Magic Glos™. Let dry under the UV Lamp. Coat the other side of each flower in Magic Glos™ and let dry under the UV lamp. This process will allow you to hand wash the pants without ruining the flowers.

Step Two: To determine placement, arrange the flowers in the way you would like them on your pants. We placed three flowers on the front of each leg and four on the back of each leg. If you want to create a straight line and mark out the spacing, it may be helpful to place a low tack masking tape along the top edge of the flowers and mark the spacing on the tape.

Step Three: Create the stem of the flower by sewing a line of 8/0 Toho bead rounds in nickel onto the pant starting at the hem, and continuing for as long as you deem necessary. To create the petals of the flower layer a large flower die cut, a small flower die cut, a 9mm antique silver large hole spacer and a 4mm seamless sterling silver round. Make sure you cover a few of the top Toho beads so as not to create a blank space. Sew these onto the pants in the same manner you would sew on a button. Sew the TierraCast™ antique silver spiral bead to one side of the stem to create the look of a leaf. Repeat this step to create the rest of the flowers on the pants.
