I hope you are doing well-
I'm loving the beautiful weather this week.
This easy little project just came together with
scraps I found while organizing my fabric box-
Cut a 5'' circle from a scrap of material.
I used brown, this is for the center of the flower.
The petal pattern is just free hand- about 2 1/2'' tall
and 1 1/2'' wide.
I cut out 3 petals from each of the fabrics for a total
of 9 petals.
For the center of the flower,
I covered an old tomato type pincushion.
You can also use a styro-foam ball.
I used a running stitch along the edge-
and gathered around the pincushion.
I'm going to use an old tin candle holder as my base.
You can use a tea cup, small plate
or any old tin mold or tuna can as your base.
Back to the petals-
With a hot glue gun, pinch the base of the petals.
Use glue to position petals in base.
I had 3 different fabrics so I went with opposite sides,
I found this vintage sewing card at The Graphic Fairy.
It can be made into a gift tag or card to go along
with the pincushion.
Save to print.
Enjoy your week!
