Happy Kansas Day!

Posted by  ·  January 29, 2010  ·  Last Updated: January 29, 2010

Some special ladies and my sweet sister in law will be wearing these fabric sunflowers today to celebrate Kansas Day.

It took some cutting!  We used Wisecraft’s tutorial, but changed the shape of the template. (I will put up the templates later)

Stack the two large flower shapes on top of each other.

Next fold one of the smaller flower shapes in half and place it on top of the larger flower shapes.

Take another small flower shape and fold it placing on top at a 90 degree angle.

Place another small flower shape on top at a 90 degree angle.

Place the last small flower shape on top at a 90 degree angle.

Sew a button on top, making sure you catch all of the folded layers. Next, sew a pin back on the back of the flower.

You can sew clusters of buttons, single buttons or stacked buttons.

Happy Kansas Day!

    My son just got home (safely, AMEN) from a four year tour with the Air Force. He was based out of Wichita and we got several chances to visit. What a beautiful state! Happy Kansas Day! The flowers are beautiful!

    I love it! As a Kansas girl (now transplanted to California) it amazes me that so many states don't celebrate their statehood! Happy Kansas Day!

    These are so very cute. Am putting a link to this project on my article about the Fick Fossil and History Museum in Kansas. The museum is located very near I-70 (Exit #76) and is well worth the time to visit it.
