Let's Begin: Mounted Poinsettia Instructions
Treat fabrics with Terial Magic with three simple steps. Use Terial Arts poinsettia pattern to make fabric poinsettias for the table runner embellishments. Use fabric colors to compliment your table runner. Cut pattern pieces for leaves, petals and poinsettia centers from Terial Magic treated fabric.
Step 1: Cut out circles.
Cut 1 1/2” diameter flower mount circle from Ultra suede, felt or cardboard. this will be the back of your flower.
Step 2: Baste stich all leaf, petal, and pattern pieces.
Baste stitch all leaf, petal and center pattern pieces (back tacking on one edge) as shown on instructions. Use machine quilt thread in bobbin for stronger pull threads.
Step 3: Pull bobbin thread to gather leaf.
Starting with leaf, (4th layer) pull bobbin thread to gather leaf length to 2”. Then, pull the top thread to lock stitching, or tie knot, to hold gathers in place. Form circle and hot glue (using low heat hot glue) ends together.
Step 4: Hot glue.
Flip over and place a bead of hot glue on top of stitches and place flower mount on top centering.
Step 5: Gather third layer of the petal and glue.
Gather third layer petal to 2”-3” in length (tighter the gathers, fuller the flower). Glue to create circle. Add glue on back side on stitches then center and glue on top of leaves.
Step 6: Check the petal placement.
Make sure that the petal placement alternates with the leaves. Do not align them!
Step 7: Repeat the gathering.
Repeat the gathering and gluing for the next 2 layers (2nd and 1st) making sure to keep petals placement alternating with the layer as shown.
Step 8: Gather poinsettia and glue.
Gather poinsettia center to 3”, add a dab of hot glue to the right side of one end, roll to create the base for the center. Add a 2” bead of glue along straight edge and roll tightly, keeping edges even. Add another bead and roll to the other end.
Step 9: Adhere the flower together.
Then add glue to underside of roll and adhere to flower center. Optional, add bead or sequin and gem to flower center. Use velcro to attach to Terial Arts table runner, wall art, or embellish your own holiday project!
