Make Arm holes using metal leaf motifs (you can also use a chain).

Thread a thin black thread (you can separate your black yarn in two to get the thinness) through the 5 leaves, leave a cm of thread between the leaves. Attach the leaves where picture shows to create arm holes. Since the bolero has two bird motifs facing back to front the arm holes will be attached in the same places, but back to front. (See image 1 for guidance). Also attach a leaf in middle of flower as image 2 shows. Use a sewing needle.
