Default Re: How to attach flowers to a dress sash?

Lay the felt down...glue the ribbon on top. Glue the flowers/embeliishments on top of that...the ribbon should be sandwiched between the felt and the flowers.

It's exactly the same as making a headband and finishing the back with felt....but bigger.

Hope this helps!
Yes, what Janet said! Also, I would suggest adding a brooch bar to the flowers to make them removable from the sash. That way the sash can be laundered without damaging the flowers.

Best of luck! Bet she'll look beautiful!!
