How to make a Christmas Poinsettia

You will need:

  • Green and Red Organza
  • Soluble fabric for support
  • Gold Sequins for the centre of the flower
  • Ribbon for affixing
  1. Draw some templates for the petals and leaves
    • 3 small petals
    • 3 medium sized petals
    • 5 large sized petals
    • 2 leaf templates
    • 1 circular shape for joining purposes
  2. Cut the templates out and pin the petals and circle onto the red organza with the soluble fabric behind.
  3. Do a straight stitch around the edge of each petal removing the template once you have stitched around it.
  4. Do further straight stitches up the centre of the petal and out from the centre line to create the veins of the petal.
  5. Once the veins are complete, do a zig zag stitch over the outline of the petal to make the edges secure. Using a narrow zigzag stitch.
  6. Once all of the petals have been stitched, dissolve the soluble fabric.
  7. Cut out the petals as close to the stitching as you can without cutting the stitching.
  8. To give the petals some shape, fold the petal in half and just stitch up from the bottom of the petal about 1 cm along the centre line.
  9. Repeat the process for the leaves using the green organza.
  10. Once the leaves and petals are complete start assembling the flower using the circular shape as the centerpiece for all the stitching.
  11. Once all of the leaves and petals have been stitched together add some gold sequins to the centre of the flower which will hide the stitching you have done joining everything together.
  12. If you want to put your poinsettia around something you will need to fix some ribbon to the back.
  13. Alternatively you can just scatter them over your Christmas table.
