Pattern Notes:  
Please read all directions through once before beginning this project.  I am indicating the exact materials that I used, but you may substitute whatever materials you wish to use.

The ribbon used is 3.5mm, but you may use 4mm. If you do not have juice can lids, you may cut circles from box board (not cardboard) or Quilter’s template plastic. I’ve used a ribbon/lace combination for the trim, but you may use 1/4" ribbon, gimp or cording . . . whatever you prefer.

Melanie Rose Buds: 
Work the first six stitches only of the pattern.

Fly w/ Rolled stem: 
Begin Fly stitch as usual, but when the thread is topside, roll the needle between thumb and finger 5 or 6 time until the ribbon coils into a spiral shape. Take ribbon down at end point, then allow the ribbon to dangle freely, and it will uncoil.

At the base of the Lazy Daisy Bullion-tip buds, work a straight stitch, wrapped three times, then proceed with the other stitches afterward.

This pattern is intended for personal use only. 
It may not be reproduced and used for any monetary gain without my express written consent.

Pin Puff Stitch Map - Actual Size

Stitching Instructions:

  Center 1 - 5" x 5" fabric on the 3" hoop. Transfer pattern and work stitches in the order given on the legend.

  Trim excess fabric at outer edge of the hoop. Remove fabric from hoop.

  Mount the second fabric on the hoop and trim as above.

  Using the outer edge of the hoop as a template, mark a circle on each of the felt pieces, and trim to size.

  With the 18" lengths of strong thread (#12 silk pearl used for this) work a running stitch line ˝" in from the cut edge on both the front and back outside pieces.

Front Section:
Place the stitched panel face down on the surface in front of you. Put the ball of batting over this, followed by the felt circle, then the juice can lid. Push down to compress the batting, and gather the fabric over the stack until fabric is taught. Knot the two ends of the gather thread together.

Back Section:
Place the right side of the back fabric face down on the surface. Next lay down the felt circle, then the juice can lid, and gather the fabric over the lid. When fabric is taught, knot the ends.

Hanger Attachment:
Cut a 10" piece of 1/8" ribbon. Fold in half and knot the two ends. Sew this end to the inside fabric of the back section at center.

Joining Front & Back :
Match the wrong sides of the front and back, lining up the hanger at top center. Use the matching thread and work in whip stitching or use Cretan stitch around the perimeter.

Attaching Trim :
Thread and center a 12" length of ribbon through the 9" eyelet lace. Beginning at top center, pull the hanger ribbon up through one eyelet, and push the excess ribbon end down between the front and back sections. Working a few inches at a time, spread an even bead of glue on the outer edge of the Puff, and glue the trim in place, stretching the lace to curve to the form. Finish at top by pushing the left over ribbon end down between the front and back sections.

Allow glue to dry overnight.
