Craft Decoration Felting Flower making

MARIGOLD FLOWERS MADE OF FELT.

We need: a fleece or felt an orange (can be several shades) for the petals. You can take white fleece – then turn out the daisy. From soft pink daisy felt turn out. Little yellow felt (fleece) for the flower core.

Green fabric for the stems and leaves, I used a thick cloth (moire), from which sew curtains, you can use any other medium density, or felt.

Buttons 10-12 mm (preferably on the leg).

Threads for sewing: normal and reinforced (very strong), a needle for sewing and darning usual, scissors, ruler, tubes from juice, double sided tape (normal, fine), pins for chipping.

Glue spider (not necessary if you use the felt).

Anyone who does not make friends with a sewing machine can breathe a sigh of relief – this time you can do without it … Oh, I almost forgot – a visual aid – I have an old book on the cultivation of garden flowers, which my mom enjoyed in his youth. Color pictures and a description of colors – to help.

Let’s start with the flowers. Fleece (felt) orange cut into strips of 5 x 25 cm. From the yellow circles cut out (not necessarily equal) with a diameter equal to twice the diameter of the buttons (buttons if the diameter of 1 cm, diameter = 2 cm circles).

A circle of yellow fleece collects on a thread. Thread better be folded in half to make a bundle. A half-volley from the edge of 3 mm and make a few stitches “forward needle”. Pull the needle out of tissue and tightens the skin, and then again do a few stitches, collecting circles edge of the accordion. It follows that from the edge of the needle was 3 mm and not crawl back to the middle of the circle.

Collecting all the circle on the thread, put the button in it and tighten gently, so as not to break the thread. Tightened so that the button is hidden inside, make a few reinforcement stitches (about how we draw the usual snowflake of six dashes).

Now we need to connect with central petals. Edge “cutting” by putting a seam to the bottom cores of yellow, fixed with two stitches. And continue wrapping the core, making reinforcement stitches. The seam can be anything – “needle back” or “over the edge”. You can use both – it is desirable that the cut does not bristle, and smoothly rounded core top and bottom.

Designate one moment – if the flower will make a child, not to the feeling that he can not. The fact that the thread tends to get confused. A lot of kids want to get a quick result, and if they hurry – thread invariably rests on the tab, pull it and petal. So make sure the child does not need to hurry, but if you had a couple of petals will spread, just cut them … business somehow 🙂

For daisy, garden dimensions can be left as indicated at the beginning, and for daisy daisies and field – a button to take a smaller diameter of about 8 mm, and a strip for 4×18 cm lobes, for example. Although in principle there is no difference because we do stylized flowers, I would even say in “primitive” art, so the size does not matter – as long as occupation and the result brought pleasure … distracted …

For the stem should be cut slanting inlay of green fabric. It is possible to draw a strip of the same width (approximately 2 cm) at 45 degrees and cut them with scissors. And you can make a trick like the pros do it: the fabric edge is at an angle of 45 degrees, the angle is bent at the top and bottom corner.

Wrap the tube can be straight strips, and even narrow ribbons – not necessarily cutting oblique Bakey.

And the one who is friends with a sewing machine, and want to learn the techniques used in sewing, can make the stem of another. But be warned, it will take patience. Session time-consuming, but learn to do “Rulik”.

1 step. First, our need to slash Bakey topstitch along the sections. The line starts right from the cutoff to get a cone (funnel) at the base. When you stitch (stitch 1.8-2 mm pitch), slightly pull the inlay. Make sure that the sections are not shifted. If the seam is uneven (see photo 1), not terrible – it is possible to stitch uneven ground yet again.

Step 2. Need darning needle and strong thread in two additions. A solid anchoring of the thread cone and the base edge needles pushes the upper section of the hole. Theoretically, the eye of the needle must abut the crease formed and slide inside Rulik until exit. If your ear still popped up, then threading through Rulik already cautiously segments tightens the thread which drags fixed edge. When this region appears from another hole, tighten it up and pull it out completely. Thus Rulik we will turn inside out there.

Now we need these cords screw tube. If Rulik gets thinner than the tube diameter, it should be cut lengthwise and twist the base. From the side of the cone (funnel), rotationally, the reciprocating tube is screwed in Rulik. You can use skewers or even toothpicks.

Now sew stems to flowers. Pre-cut into small slices of green fabric. With the stock on the hem for the bulk tissue. the Without reserve – from felt. In the center of the hole cut through masenkaya. We put the stem to the base of the flower and sew a few stitches it. Next threaded stem through hole cooked slices, summing the base circle and sewn to the bottom of the flower, and simultaneously bending the edge of the closing seams that stitch pitch.

Now the leaves. If they are made of felt, simply cut the desired shape. If you use cloth, then two layers of fabric glue to bond better cobweb. Cobweb lay between two pieces of fabric on top of wet gauze (a thin calico) and put the hot iron on the whole pie, pressed down and wait until the gauze under the iron does not dry up (2). Glued on the canvas are putting a pattern of leaves (preferably on the bias) and cut out as much as you need (or how much it will). Sew to the stem (Photo 6).

Actually, this could be and finish the epic, but I ventured this story with a single purpose – to bring out a bucket-ceramic pots orange … And my 7 florets in a wide bucket will not stand. So I will strengthen them in  – a sleeve of adhesive tape, in which the oasis of colors. He is very loose, so it is best to pack in a plastic bag. Oasis slightly second-hand (already served one flower), but in this case, it does not, matter – we’re doing for your own use, the main thing that kept flowers in it, and on top, we have something.

And the result of the two-day epic. I wanted to complement its daisies, white fleece but did not find in its storerooms.
