I chose ‘Flower Power’ as a reminder of the slogan developed in the 1960s/70s to represent peaceful resistance.
I created a cushion with a blossom made with different colourful materials.
First I stitched a few green leaves . In one leaf I sewed the Initials FP, with a narrow zigzag stitch.
Then I created little rectangles and folded the smaller sides 1cm in and stitched one raw side onto my fabric. After folding it , I stitched the next one on. Working from the inside to the outside the flower blossomed.
The last circle is hand stitched.
