Friday Flower Grape Hyacinth
I remember Grape Hyacinth popping up in early spring as a young girl. I loved these little flowers. I am not sure if it was their color (blue being my favorite), the tiny bundle of tightly packed flowers, their bell shape or the fact that they were a sure sign of spring.
Unfortunately I didn't have a good photo of a Grape Hyacinth, but the wikipedia had a perfect image.
In this image you can see the tiny bell shaped flowers.
I made my flowers all in one piece, but they could be made separately too, however that could be quite a fiddly job. On a larger scale it would be better.
I used the lightbox to trace through the individual flower sections and then I dabbed the bases on the lower flowers with a little white fabric paint. Once the stitching defined each flower, this really came to life.
Here's how my Grape Hyacinth finished up.
