Sizing ribbon to make clover chair sashes by Champagne and Sugarplums

Measure your burlap ribbon around the back of your chair, it should be snug but not too tight as you will need to be able to slip the sash onto the chair back without it slipping down. Leave an inch or two of seam allowance, and for space to adjust the size if needed.

Use the circle template (or a glass) to create a clover on the dark green felt by tracing two half circles for each leaf and then add a stem.

The dark green clover will be a stencil to trace the shape onto the light green felt sheets. Cut out the light green clovers about ½” smaller than the traced outline.
