Gerbera patch work

What a feast for the women go without a nice bouquet of flowers? And what a pity that in 2-3 days the flowers lose their vitality and beauty and start to fade. Today offer a master class on creating a very beautiful gerbera flowers. These flowers are in the so diverse in nature that they fit perfectly into the category of bright and colorful flowers that always cheer up and will not go unnoticed in the interior.
Since I work in the technique of patchwork, we will do our gerbera patchwork fabric. It is based on kazanshi technique, however, only in the creation of the petals themselves.

So we need.
  1. The circle diameter of 10 cm2 pieces. bases for flower (orange).
  2. The same color as the base squares 5x5 cm. 26 pieces. (Orange).
  3. The tone lighter squares 3,5h3,5 sm.18 pieces. (Yellow).
  4. The tone of the darkest to the middle, squares 3,5h3,5 cm 20 pcs. (Brown).
  5. The terms of the dense fabric with a diameter of 8 cm. 1 pc. Filling the base. In this embodiment, I took felt, but may be any other material.  
  6. Circle 5 cm in diameter. Green.
  7. Stripe fabric 3.5x 35cm. stalk.
  8. Circle with a diameter of 3 cm. Of brown felt for midway.
  9. The wire diameter of 7 mm. 32 cm. I bought cable television, he appropriate thickness and holds its shape when bent.
  10. Beads.
  11. Needle for beads.
  12. Manicure scissors.
  13. Hot glue.
  14. Sintepon.
  15. Sewing machine.
It must be said that the color and the distribution of tones you can make a change, a matter of taste, and most importantly the will to your fantasies. I took a gerbera in other patches even different colors. Cloth use 100% cotton- cloth patchwork, it holds its shape, non-slip and a large range of colors, saturated colors. The number of petals I have given with a margin of 2-3 pc., I always get a different number, because somewhere plump petal falls, and somewhere along freely.
Making the blanks:
Squares of 5x5 cm., Folded in half on the diagonal 2 times, then bend the edge of the central angle (where the idea of ​​the middle of the square, if it is visually expand) to the top in different directions. It turns out the first petal, anchoring smear of hot glue and take the next square. So we add up all the blanks. 

Then take the yellow squares 3,5h3,5 see and add them on the diagonal 3 times, smear hot glue anchoring the corner.

The same is done with blanks brown 3x3 cm. 

Now take a strip of green, folding it along the length of the face inward and stitched by the seam with the addition of 0.5 cm. Then stitched by one side across the strip, gut-wrenching. 

Take one large circle with a diameter of 10 cm, on the front side of the circle put a green face up, sew a zig-zag green thread. The right edge of the line to go on the edge of the circle

Then the circle to face the second put the orange circle and sew in a circle, leaving a small gap. Gut-wrenching. We thrust circle with a diameter of 8 cm. Of thick fabric, distribute it evenly and there is a hidden seam to sew up the gap.

We've got here are blank:

Now we start all gather into a flower.
In large petals cut the corner, which is turned 90 degrees, this is done to ensure that the pitch "lying" on the ground.

In the photo below you can see the pitch before and after comparison.In the photo below you can see the pitch before and after comparison.

After the cut angle, smear glue the cut:

Glue to the top of the flower petals Based on opposite sides as shown. cutting edge coincides with the edge of the circle.

Now select from the middle of the pitch, and glue them in a circle on top of the orange by about 0.5 cm These petals do not we cut off, so they will not "lie down" and "stay.":

Yellow petals we prune, like orange. The angle of each petal I pasted between brown, slightly pushing them. You can between each, and it is possible in some places to pass, as you wish.

Now we proceed to the middle,. Middle, has not only a decorative value, but also hides the glued angles in the center. On the edge I sewed yellow beads, and closer to the center of beige, clear, slightly golden overflow. 

Lay off midway aside and proceed to the stem. The green bar, vdevaem until the end of the wire.

Now we do in the center of the green circle cut in the form of a cross, about 2 mm. from the center in each direction. Try not to hurt the orange fabric. Securely fills synthetic padding to obtain a "cushion". All sintepon should be inside.

Insert the stem into the hole, the green edge of the circle must be overlapping circular stalk. Green thread to sew a hidden stitch around. To stem clung and cushion remained bulk when sew back down by about 0.5 cm on the stem of the circle, those circle thus pulling on the stem.

Glued midway, the adhesive is applied to the entire surface of the circle.
That's what we've got:

And here are more options for the color scheme:
