It's nice to have you back too !
Let's get started on making some beautiful daffodils .
You will need some daffodily coloured fabric,
some thin wire , buttons, cardboard for templates
and green electrical tape .
Use the cardboard to make a petal template
the one used here is about 2" high .
Cut out your template and use it to trace 6 petals
on double fabric with right sides facing.
Stitch around all the petals before cutting them
out with pinking shears .
Turn the petals right side out and press.
Tack along the base of the petals without breaking
the thread in between keeping them all together .
Pull the thread to form flower shape and stitch
securely together .
Cut two different pieces of coloured fabric approx
4" wide x 2" high .
Stitch along the top .
Open out and fold to form a tube , stitch .
Fold under raw edges.
Turn right side out with the folded edges as your base.
Turn over a small piece at the top.
Gather and secure the base with neat stitching .
Stitch centre to petals .
Thread wire through button .
Push the wired button through the centre of the flower.
Cover the wire with green electrical tape .
I hope I have made all this very clear and
haven't forgotten any photos or steps .
Wishing you all a blooming gorgeous Spring !
