All the shapes for this issue’s makes, plus a handy embroidery stitch guide
01 Remove each pre-cut piece from the felt. To make the poppy, take a small dark pink petal. Overlap the centre flap onto the right flap, then place the left flap on top to create a cupped base. Sew using two strands of matching thread.
02 Repeat Step 1 with the remaining dark pink petals – there should be three small, three medium and four large.
03 Tie a knot halfway along the green rectangle, then thread both ends through the slit in the green centre piece.
04 Stitch the base of the petals around the base of the centre piece, starting with the smallest and working out to the largest. Overlap as you go to get an even shape, and avoid stitching the green rectangle as this will attach the flower to the hoop.
05 Sew two green leaves to the base of the flower to finish.
06 To make the peony, repeat Steps 1-2 with the pale pink petals, and Step 3 with the pale pink rectangle. Repeat Steps 4-5 to attach the petals and leaves.
07 To make the anemone, repeat Steps 1-2 with the peach petals, then tie a knot halfway along the thinnest dark pink rectangle. Fold it in half along the length, then wrap the dark pink filament strip around the knot as shown, positioning the top of the knot just below the top of the snipped filaments. Sew using matching thread.
08 Attach the petals around the base of the centre filament as per Step 4, then add the leaves as per Step 5.
09 To attach the flowers to the hoop, overlap the ends of each felt rectangle around the hoop and trim any excess felt. Using matching thread, sew the ends together, as close to the hoop as possible. You can use a dab of glue to secure them further.
10 Tie the length of ribbon to the top of the hoop to hang.
