1.   Print out the template

 

Print out the downloadable petal template here. 

(Check print settings are set to "Actual size" in Size Options of print menu.)

 

 

2. Prepare the petals

 

Using the petal template, and water soluble pen or pencil, trace round the template on the right side of the fabric. Cut out 12 petals leaving a ¼“ seam allowance all the way around template.

2. Sewing petals together

 

Spend time putting the petals into the order you like most.

 

Placing right sides together sew neighbouring petals together along the long edges, using a ¼“ seam allowance.

 

Continue until the 12 petals are joined and form a complete circle.

 

 

 

 

Press seams open.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

3. Preparing to applique

 

Prepare backing material, cutting it to required size.

 

If your daisy is going to be the centre of a block, fold square backing in half then quarters, pressing lightly.

 

Open out and centre the daisy in the middle, using the fold lines as a guide. Pin in place.

 

 

 

4. Applique daisy to backing

 

To applique the daisy to the backing, turn under the raw edge at the centre of the daisy, and sew in place using small Slip stitches.

 

Then turn under the raw edges on the outer curved edge, using the curve marked in step 2, as a guideline. Again using small Slip stitches to hold in place.

 

Happy sewing x
