Unfading flower

Our nature is very multifaceted. She is amazingly beautiful. The most important decoration of Mother Nature is flowers! We often give them to our loved ones or simply tear them off the flower beds, without thinking that soon all this beauty will fade.
I want to share with you the idea of ​​creating artificial flowers from fabric that can decorate your home, clothes, accessories and more for a very long time.
In order to do this you will need:
- fabric (any color)
- scissors
- stencil of large circles (can be replaced with a saucer and a cup)
- pen or felt-tip pen
- needle
- thread (for the color of the fabric)
- monofilament (thin fishing line)
- beads
- large bead
First, prepare the petals. They are created from circles. Circle the saucer with a felt-tip pen or pen. If you have large stencils at hand, use them. For one flower, you need to cut five circles with a diameter of 16 cm and five circles with a diameter of 12 cm.

The size can be any, and the layer of petals can be made only one. This will not make the flower worse.
Take a large circle, fold it in half.

Fold in half again.

Thread the needle. Start collecting the petal at the base, as do basting. Do not relax the thread. Pull off the petal carefully.

Connect all five petals in a circle among themselves at the base. The same should be done with petals of smaller diameter. Small petals are laid out on large and sew the bases together, so that they do not fall apart.
Then proceed to the creation of the core. Take a small piece of fabric. Pull a bead over it. Sew firmly at the base. After that, take a needle with monofilament (in other words, this is a very thin transparent fishing line). Sew the beads in several places on the core.

Then insert the core into the hole between the petals. Sew all the necessary parts together from the inside. Excess tissue from the core can be neatly trimmed. If you do everything right, you will get such a wonderful flower.
