Five-sided box 9: Peony and buttercup

This final side of my five-sided box features a deep red peony flower, and some yellow buttercups – the motif is from the book ‘Flowers for Elizabeth’, by Susan O’Connor.

The long and short stitch filling was quite time-consuming to do – several areas needed padding with stitches first – but I was very pleased with the way it turned out.

The very edges of some of the petals have two layers of stitched padding underneath them, so they look more 3D than the rest of the flower.

Now comes the making-up part….oh dear! Scary!
