A Martha Stewart DIY Fabric Pansy


We are all waiting for our flowers to come up
in our gardens but leave it to Martha Stewart to get a fun
jump on the season.
In her magazine, she has developed an easy "how-to"
for us to create pretty colorful pansies.

These beautiful fabric flowers would look stunning
in a vase but I would love to see them used in
home decor as a pretty addition to a
summery pillow.
as a fashion accessory at the waist of a
pretty floral skirt or even in your hair
if you are so inclined.

Yea Martha..
She's still a favorite icon.

 How To:

1. Print template here. Cut out. Cut a 2-by-36-inch strip of fabric with detail scissors. (For a smaller version, cut a 1 1/2-by-30 inch strip.) Trace template on it with pen, repeating along the length. Cut out.

2. Sew a running stitch several inches along bottom, 1/4 inch from edge. Every 3 to 4 inches, pull thread together; secure with a double stitch.

3. Spiral strip tightly to create flower shape, securing with random stitches.  When it’s completely rolled, stitch through all layers to secure.

4. Cover stitched back with a small disc of fabric.  Sew to desired pin.
