Felt Flower Tutorial



I love these felt flowers and have made them in varying colours.  Add a brooch pin on the back and they make great brooches.  They are so easy to make and I thought I would share with you how to create your own.  You just need a length of felt, scissors, thread, needle and a glue gun.

Step 1.  Cut 1 large circle(approx. 3" diameter), 15 large petal shapes, 3 small petal shapes and 1 scallop shape.

 
Step 2. Cut the large petal shapes in half. 
 
Step 3. Use the glue gun and dab a small amount of glue at the end and pinch together.  Hold until the glue has set.  Then add another dab of glue on back of the petal and attach to the edge of the circle.
 

 
Step 4.  Continue adding petals around the edge of the circle, as below.
 
Step 5. Continue adding the large petals overlapping those on the outer edge of the felt circle as below.

 
Step 6.  Repeat with a further layer so you have 3 layers of the large petals.
Step 7. Use the smaller petals and cut them in half.  Pinch the small petals and using the needle and thread sew the ends together.
 
Step 8. Use the glue gun and glue the smaller petals in the centre of the flower.

 
Step 9. Cut the scallop shape in a swirl as below.
 
Step 10.  Start with outer edge roll the felt to create a bud, dabbing with glue as you go to secure in place.
 
Step 11. Glue the bud in to the centre of the flower to complete.
 
These are great to accessorise outfits.  You could add a brooch pin and wear on a jacket, embellish a hat or liven up a bag. 
 
Have fun creating!
 
Bye for now
