Sew an easy daffodil
1 Download the online template above and print. Use it to cut six petals from yellow felt and a trumpet.
2 Clip one long edge of a 2cm x 8cm piece of yellow felt, roll to make a tassel and secure. Wrap the trumpet around the tassel, sew the side seam and stitch at the base.
3 Crease each petal in half, running stitch from the centre down to the base, then open and sew to the trumpet base. Add five more petals. Make two leaves in the same way and sew to the daffodil back.
4 Slip stitch a small disc of felt over the raw edges, then add a brooch back to the reverse.
