Read all manufacturer’s instructions for creating blooms before starting.
For 12×12” pillow, make approx. 35 to 37 blooms.
For 25×16” pillow, make approx. 56 blooms.
Make appropriate numbers of blooms by mixing the yarns together.
You can make first layer of petals with one or two yarns depending on the thickness.
Finish the small layer with an additional yarn from your selection to give it contrast. Mix it up to give it an eclectic look. For a more streamline look you can go with all one color. Using one color yarn but with different textures will create yet another look for you.
Glue blooms to pillow or sew on with needle and thread.
