Dryer Sheet Pansy Tutorial Part 1

As promised, here is the tutorial for making Dryer Sheet Pansies. You can find the tutorial for painting the dryer sheets in my post of December 21, 2006. If you would like to make some of these, but don't care to mess with painting the dryer sheets, there are still a few packs available in my Etsy shop.

The supply list for this project can be found in my December 22, 2006 post.

First, here is the pattern:

Dryer Sheet Pansy Pattern

Click on the image to go to my Flickr site where you can download the large version. When printed, the pansy at it's widest point should measure about 3 inches.

The dotted lines are stitch marks so don't worry about those for now.

Trace 1 of each of the pansy parts and 3 leaves onto paper side of your fusible web.

Dryer Sheet Pansy 1

Cut them apart and iron the leaves to your green dryer sheet, the large part of the pansy to the purple dryer sheet and the small part of the pansy to the yellow dryer sheet.

Dryer Sheet Pansy 2

Next, iron a piece of lightweight interfacing to your cotton fabrics.

Dryer Sheet Pansy 3

Cut out leaves and pansy parts, remove paper backing and iron to right side of fabric.

Dryer Sheet Pansy 4

Now cut your pansy pieces out around the edge of the dryer sheet.

Dryer Sheet Pansy 5

You'll need a dab of glue to attach the yellow part of the pansy to the purple part of the pansy. Just use what you have, it doesn't have to be fabric glue. White household glue will work fine. It's just a temporary hold.

Tomorrow, I will have the final part of this tutorial for you.

Great tutorial. I think I can even do it! I'm sending friends to see it, too. They were looking at some "art" postcards on eBay and I told them yours were better. They agreed. =)
