Blooming Flower.... how-to!

As I was doing the flower, act as a fastener for the bucket bag recently, I managed to snap few pics for my reference (so sorry for the blurred images). I would like to share here, simple steps of how-to. Maybe this will give an idea of this easy to make and beautiful flower to add to any parts of our bags, dress, hair clips/hairband or as a rosette.

Here goes......

Cut 5 petals measured 3" x 3" square.Thread in needle with about 24" length of thread and knot the tail. Fold one piece of fabric becomes a triangle shape, and do running-stitch on both raw edges. Pull tight until it forms a single petal.









Do not cut the tread.... just continue doing the same to the next square. Add in all five petals, forming into a flower and tie the tread several time to secure, and still keep the threaded needle to continue. I happened to have some wrapped button from Naiz sometimes ago (thanks Naiz) to match. Centre the button and stitch several times to keep it in place.

Position the brooch or safety pin (mine is a bit tiny) at the back of the flower and stitch several times and tie and cut off thread. Well, all done and the flower is blooming beautifully..... :D

This one is for the sew along - bucket bag,.

What a lovely flower, when you put a tee ( using with golf) in the back you can pin it in the top of a spool and use it as a pincussion, but i love it as a broche too.
