In this tutorial you’ll learn to make this sheer fabric daffodil.
- white sheer polyester fabric
- yellow satin ribbon
- yellow and white sewing thread
- needle and scissor
Cut two flower shapes, each with four petals.
Carefully melt the edges of the polyester fabric over a candle. (Don’t use natural fabric like cotton or rayon/viscose! – This would burn and not melt.)
Cut a small strip from the yellow ribbon.
Sew the ends together …
… so that you’ll get a small tube.
Arrange two flower shapes as in the picture above …
… and sew with running stitches a small circle through both fabric layers.
Draw the thread tight so that the petals are slightly gathered.
Attach the ribbon tube with some stitches …
… gathering it slightly.
To make the stamens, wrap yellow sewing thread round your fingers.
Wrap wire round the middle of the yarn loops. Cut both ends of the yarn loops.
Pierce each end of the wire separately through the middle of the flower, each hole should lie a bit apart.
Twist the wire, and your DIY narcissus is finished.
