I am glad to share with you how to make flowers for textile dolls. If you have any questions, I will be happy to answer them.
To create a tulip, you will need:
1. knitwear (fleece on a knitted basis);
3. floral wire;
6. pen (pencil);
7. pliers (to cut the wire).
Cut the wire 8 cm long.
You will get such templates (5-7 pieces), depends on your desire. How many tulips you want to make.
Take felt. Cut 10 cm x 30 cm.
Cut the leaves.
Cut out leaves having put a pattern on felt. It is not necessary to contour the leaves not have traces from the pencil.
That what you get. You will use the rest of felt to sew stems.
Fold the felt, as shown in the photo, gently sew. The strip should be 7mm - 1 cm wide.
Once you have stitched, retreat from the seam 2-3 mm and cut off the excess.
You get such stems. One side is sewn, leave the other unsewn to insert the wire into it.
Insert the wire to the end of the sewn side.
Sew up the side in which the wire was inserted. Sew up carefully, so that the needle does not hit the wire.
You get the ready-made stems, cut the excess felt.
Proceed to the buds. I have a fleece on a knitted base. Cut 10 cm x 20 cm. Fold in half.
Transfer the pattern of buds.
Sew buds, do not forget to take a step back at the beginning and end of the seam.
Buds are stitched.
You get such pieces.
Proceed to the assembly of tulips. You will need the blanks, glue gun, needle, thread, scissors.
Fill the buds with holofiber.
Once you have stuffed all the buds, you need to pull the thread edge.
Insert the stem into the bud and tighten the bud thread.
Sew the bud to the stem with a hidden seam. Tie the knot.
Hide the thread into the bud and cut.
Take a leaf and put it on a Tulip.
Apply glue on the stem.
Press the first side to the stem.
Then apply some more glue and press the other side to the stem.
You will get such a tulip.
The tulips are ready.
