fabric tulips tutorial


So you'd like to make some tulips ?

First you will need some scrap cardboard .
Copy the diagram below , my finished template
was about 6" long by about 2 1/2 " high
with a little edge about 1/4" on each end .


Trace around your template onto doubled fabric .
Do not cut out yet .
Begin your stitching on the little edge leaving
the longer side pieces open .
Stitch all around the petal shapes .
Trim and clip curves before turning out .


Give your petals a good iron .
Open the fabric and match the unstitched edges and stitch .
Turn the tulip right side out .
Fold under the raw edges at the base of the tulip
and use a double thread to tack all around
and then pull the gathering stitches to form the base .


Push a stick into the centre (you can use a chopstick)
If you find your flower a bit wobbly on the stick
you can add some glue on the inside .

Tie a piece of green ric rac or ribbon on the stick
because this makes the tulips look even more real !

A few variations could be putting two flowers
on one stick for double tulips or having
different fabrics on the inside .


All done !
Let me know what you think and if
you make some I'd love to see them .


Thanks a bunch for visiting !

Great tulips! Thanks for the tutorial! :)

Cheryll said...

What a clever little thing you are! They're fantastic! :)

Louise said...

Might have a go at these if I find the time, they are lovely. I have finally got round to making something Clare with the rainy day fabric you sent to me. It wasn't what I originally planned but this project only used a smidgeon of the sheet, so plenty left over for a cushion cover and/or bunting.
