Aye up petal.

This is a nice easy project to do while I sit and have my morning coffee. I think if I made a lot of these flowers I could put them in a vase. I have some wire to make the stalks, and I could make leaves and attach them to the stalks. 

They are simple to make, I've done a diagram with instructions in case you want to have a go. I have put Suffolk Puffs in the middle of these, but you could make a second set of petals a bit smaller and put them on top. I have put buttons in the centre, and a circle of felt on the back to hold all the parts together. 

There are plenty of videos on yooootoooob if you get stuck. Thin cotton fabric or silk works best. If you use thicker fabric the gathers won't pull tight and the hole in the middle will be too big. 
Thanks for popping in. Toodle pip.  ilona
