I found a pattern to cover a sewing tape measure. I did not have the right yarn so I used #10 Knit Cro Sheen. I really liked the way the body of the pattern came out but had a problem with the flower part. So I gathered the center of the green so it was snug. I then made up a flower of my own and glued it to the top of the tape measure after I had sewn a shank button to the center of the flower. Next time I will put the button to retract the tape on the non-flower side. I think it will make it much easier to close.
