Felt Daffodil: Free Pattern and Tutorial... Because I love You Guys.

for the blog
 For this tutorial you will need:

Felt in daffodil colors
thread to match
or fabric glue
optional bamboo skewer for stalk

Scissors and pinking shears
sewing machine (also optional.)

Cut out all the pattern pieces with regular scissors, except for the top of the center piece. Cut that with pinking shears.

Roll the center into a tube and glue or stitch the sides together. I used a contrasting thread to show you how.

Sew a running stitch along the bottom of the center piece.
Be sure and leave long tails on the thread. 
Use the tails like draw strings
to close up the bottom of the center, 
and tie with a hard knot. Trim.
Scrunch up the petal piece a little and stitch to the center piece around the bottom.
There is your finished blossom.

 Just stitch the felt leaf and stem for a soft embellishment  like on the easter basket above or...
for the blog

Glue or stitch the felt around the bamboo skewer and seam the leaf up the center for a flower that stands up.
