– scissors (zigzag or common);

– sewing pins;
– a sushi chopstick;
– a pattern;

How to easy sew tilda tulip

Cut out the pattern details.

Take the green fabric and transfer a leaf (2 details) and a footstalk (1 detail) onto it.

Pile the leaf details face to face, fold the footstalk detail in half vertically and seam them, using sewing machine; do not forget to leave holes for turning out. Cut out the details with zigzag scissors (or with common ones, making notches transversely to the seam in every curved and concaved area), leaving seam allowances of about 5 mm.

Then, take the red fabric and repeat the similar moves.

Turn the details inside out, using a sushi chopstick, and iron them.

Stuff the footstalk and the bud tightly with holofiber, do not sew up the holes for turning out.
