Q&A with Celeste Chalasani

Chysgoda asked:
How did you stitch the freestanding cones? Is it similar to the wired slips for petals and wings?
Celeste Chalasani answered:
The anthers are made by tacking felt around wrapped wire and then stitching Detached Buttonhole Stitch over the felt padding. They are inserted into the middle of the flowers and then couched to the backing cotton.
