Flowers in the Sunshine

Smileycons!I have decided to post in a series of postings my class Flowers in the Sunshine.
If you would like to do this project come back each week for the next class.
I would appreciate it if you let me know in the comments who would be interested in making this little project.
It will run over 4 weeks starting next week. Flowers in the Sunshine Class
Please read all lessons before you start to work.
A4 (11.5” x 8.5”) size piece of felt (don’t get a really fluffy one)
Black net 1” larger then felt
Vlisoflex (paper backed fusible web) or heat and bond 1” large then felt
Binding and backing fabric
Angelina in colour of your choice
Fabric Paint I use Jo Sonia but any will work
Silk flowers and leaves of your choice pull these apart taking all stamens and plastic off back of the silk flower and leaves. You may pick any type of flower you want but don’t make them too big or bulky.
Motif of something like butterfly if you like to use
Beads of your colour choice to finish
Metallic Machine Embroidery thread I like to use hologram as it is flat and not round and does not break as easily.
Metallic or Embroidery needle. They have bigger eyes.
I usually sew straight onto the felt but if your machine will not sew on this use a tearaway, vilene, or shapewell. I use shapewell.
Sewing machine in good order and able to drop the feed dogs.
Usual sewing needs and cutting mat and cutter.
