I love poppies. They are so popular lately too. So how can you join in on the fun? I'll show you.
First you will need to make a few petals, find out how here. Which makes this tutorial Part 2
Needle and thread, or fabric glue
Beads, sparkly what nots, buttons, anything small and pretty
Optional- Bobby pin, hair comb, barrette, alligator clip, broach pin, what ever you want to use to attach the flower to your item or hair.
Here we go!
Step 1- Divide your petals into piles by size.
Step 2- For a small poppy, stack three to five petals on top of each other by size. I tend to use the same size for the bottom two petals to puff it up a bit. Once you like the look take your needle and thread and run through all the layers a couple times. If you don't want to sew, or if your doing thing with kids to small to use a needle, you can use a dot of fabric glue between each layer to assemble rather than sewing.
Step 3- Place what ever you are putting in the center of your flower and sew through all layers and your center piece a few times until you feel it's secure. If your center doesn't have a hole you can use some glue to secure it after your finished with step 4.
Step 4- This step is optional depending on what your using your poppy for. I chose to make this one for my hair. I could have sewn on a bobby pin but I decided to try some new alligator clips I got. Glue or sew your clip, comb, or pin to the back of your flower.
The more petals you stack up the fuller your poppy will be.
