I love these Deb, they look fantastic and remind me so much of Christmas. They look just like Poinsettia flowers. Love Chris

Not hard at all. They are done mostly in the hoop and a little hand sewing. It's basically 2 circles, the first one with the metallic border design stitched on it. Then you place the second contrasting fabric (backing) face down on top of that. Stitch. Turn right side out and hand stitch the opening closed.

Take this circle, fold in half, tack at the middle (indicated by a line of stitching marking the place) at the top edge and then fold in half again and stitch it all at the center point.

Then you get to "fiddle with it" to get it to be square - which you can see I wasn't always successful doing... LOL!

they look perfect to me and besides you can just count the not so square ones as having character! Thanks for explaining this process to me, maybe someday I'll get everything done on my to TRY LIST. :~)

I know what you mean - I could use about three more lifetimes to do what's on my Try list!

Thanks for posting your project and the "how to" info too. I found them to be quite enchanting. The little beads in the center really are a nich finishing touch!
