Beginning as close to one end of the strap as possible, use the 015 thread to create a border along the top and bottom of the strap. Add a second border inside the green using your pink thread.
Begin in the center of the strap and create a flower using your purple thread. make a loop with the thread and press it down. Make a second loop opposite the first, and press it down as well. Make two more loops to form the flower. Continue these steps along both sides of the straps until you have a row of flowers on each side.
