Now, I will admit I had no clue what a poinsettia was, but they are big during the holiday season. I was so inspired, that I started to think where else could these fabric poinsettia's be placed. Thought of decoration around the house, tree ornaments, brooches and even extra décor on gifts.
Materials & Supplies
- Pattern (See step 1)
- Felt. I picked up 8.5 x 11" sheets of glitter felt from Fabricland
- Matching thread
- Brooch back if you wish to make the poinsettia into a brooch. Ribbon if you wish to make the poinsettia into an ornament.
- Hand sewing needle
Cut out your paper pattern.
Prior to sewing beads, secure the 3 layers of your flower with a few stitches going top to bottom in the center 3-4 times.
Sew as many beads as you like, keeping beads centered in the poinsettia. Finish and tie a knot in the back.
I'm making my poinsettia into a brooch. First hand sew the brooch back to the back of flower. Next, cut out a small piece of felt and hand sew felt down around the circle.
