Materials: 7 rectangles of bright prints 4 x 5 inches cut on the bias
7 small buttons of any size or color
green cotton material for leaves; cut 10 pieces from pattern
pipe cleaners for stems


Fold each rectangle of cloth on the long side with right sides together and stitch to make a tube 5 inches long. Turn the top of this tube back over itself until the raw edge meets the bottom edge evenly with the seam on the inside. Turn under the raw edges and run a gathering thread around the edge. Insert pipe cleaner stem through the center of the gathers and one eye of the button, pull the button down on the stem, fold the stem in half and bring it back through the opposite eye of the button (stamens). Twist the short end of the stem around the button to fasten. Then pull the gathering thread tight and fasten. Turn the flower up around this center and shape the top (bias) to form tulip-like shape.


Stitch two pieces of green material cut in the leaf pattern quite close to the edge (right side). Make a double row of stitching through the center of the leaf wide enough to insert pipe cleaner stem. Leave a small opening at the base of the seam and insert a pipe cleaner and bend in the proper shape.
