  • 1. Cut Cottage Red felt to 5-1/2" x width of bread and Oatmeal felt to 4" x width of bread. Cut long edges of Oatmeal felt with scallop-edge scissors. Layer and glue felt strips together. Follow manufacturer's instructions to fuse Cottage Red and Moss Green felt to webbing. Print and cut out patterns. Transfer patterns to fused felt; cut out. Use photo as guide to arrange leaves and poinsettias on Oatmeal felt.
  • 2. Use three strands of Ecru floss to blanket stitch edges of Oatmeal felt, Med. Green Gray floss for leaves and Garnet floss for petals. Use Garnet floss to sew five beads to center of each flower.
  • 3. Wrap felt around bread and attach hook-and-loop tape to ends to secure. Cut 12" length from ribbon and tie bow around bread. Use computer to print bread label on beige card stock. Use tag punch to punch out tag around lettering. Punch hole at top and use hemp to tie onto bread.
