I am still catching up with my Mollie Makes Kits and my week away has been a good opportunity to do this. The kit above is from issue 2 and this happens to be in my favourite colours.
I did add a bit to this as there was plenty of felt in the kit, which I like, and having the extra time to work on it was even better!
I used the templates in the back of the magazine and pinned them onto the felt pieces and then cut them out very carefully. I wanted the petals to stick up a bit so I added a little tuck in the back of each section and secured with a couple of very small stitches. Then by stacking them on top of each other they did seem to stick out more.
The centre of the flower was harder and after dropping the sections several times I decided to put gather stitches through each of the colour sections, roll them round and then secure again with more stitches.
The centre was then stitched going through all of the layers and knotted on the back.
I used the left over felt to cut some leaves and added these to the back of the flower.
To neaten up the back and hide any of my stitches I added a piece of baby blue felt from my collection which I brought with me for another project.
After all of the cutting, pinning, stitching (and dropping it on the floor a couple of times) and admiring the 3D look is still there.
I have a couple of cardigans at home which will look great with this and I can attach it to my bag as well.
Has anyone else made up their kit? If you have leave a comment and a link and we can all pop over and admire.
