the point is

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 anyway) 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 .

Love these Christmassy corsages, no time to make them this year but I'm thinking next year they would make fabulous embellishments on Christmas presents wrapped in plain brown paper. Thanks for the idea! X.

Absolutely love the Poinsietta brooch/hair thingie. Have been looking for a very quick way of making one for a Chrissie present.

Those are seriously cute - I agree with Louise that for next year they would be great to make to decorate packages, but I would also pin them on my winter coat and purse, lol!

I just made the template. I'm off now to make a few. I'm your newest follower!

So we made one this evening. My children had great fun helping. They decided the petals needed a little stuffing so ours is a little puffy! Very cute. Thanks for the tutorial. I think we'll be making a few more before very long.

Deanna said...

Nice! I'll be making several of these next year.

Margarita said...

Cute Clare, as usual you have come up with something different.

Melanie said...
