It will be a wonderful gift for March 8 for women of absolutely any age. The soft eight will delight its future owner and will certainly cheer her up on this festive day.
So, to perform this work will require the following:
  • a piece of thin foam rubber measuring 15x20 cm (thickness not more than 2 cm);
  • wide satin ribbons of two colors (main color - 4 meters, decor - about 1 meter);
  • thin openwork or wavy tape (also up to 1 meter);
  • thread and needle;
  • waterproof polymer glue;
  • scissors.

First we proceed to create a sketch. On a piece of paper, draw a volumetric figure "eight", after which we cut it.

Then we transfer the contour to foam rubber. Circle the pattern with a ballpoint pen: this will make all the lines very clear.

Cut the soft figure is most neat, because its lateral sides should remain smooth. But this does not mean that ideally smooth surfaces should be sought. Remember that the tape will still hide minor irregularities.

Then evenly we wrap the soft silhouette inside, laying out the tape symmetrically. Make sure that the base is not pinched and deformed.

After that, we sew straight stitches with a thin ribbon on a colored base and bring the end of the red decor to the center.

And from the decorations we have only a rosette, which we will make from a ribbon and simply stick to the base.

We sew the red ribbon with a thin thread and slightly tighten it; we also fix the bottom edge so that the flower does not break up.

The foliage can be made from a ribbon or a dense green fabric, but a factory blank, taken from a bouquet of artificial flowers, will be completely in harmony with this kind of flower.

On the reverse side, it also does not hurt to sew the ribbon in order to fix the satin base on both sides and prevent its displacement in the consequence (the ribbon is not sewn).
So our eight became even more interesting to look.
