Hello there !
I've been making poinsettia brooches and thought
if you had a spare few minutes you might like
to make some too .
First I made a template from cardboard in a sort of
poinsettia petal shape .
Mine is about 1" along the base tapering to the top
and about 3" high .
Trace 6 petals on doubled Christmasy fabric .
Stitch around the sides leaving the base open
for turning through .
Cut around the petal with pinking shears
and trim the point .
Turn right side out and press .
Use a double thread and tacking stitch to join the petals.
Pull the thread to gather the petals into a flower shape.
Use little , teeny stitches to stitch the flower securely .
Add some pretty matching buttons to the centre .
I can hardly call this a tutorial (but I will) these are so easy !
These can be used as brooches , gift toppers or Christmas
decorations maybe you'd like to wear one in your hair!
I hope you get a chance to make some of these .
