Felt Flower Tutorial

September 3, 2011 § Leave a comment

This is a perfect little embellishment for fall!  I love little felt flowers and they are everywhere right now, the best thing is they are so easy to make…go ahead try it out and see.  {You can get felt from the fabric store by the yard or online they have a fantastic selection of colors.  They also sell felt squares in the childrens art section but the felt is really cheap looking and when cut leaves a fuzzy edge.}  Have fun.

First, cut out three leaves in your choice of color. With one of the three leaves cut out the vein for one of the leaves.  Set Aside.

 

Next, cut a piece of felt that is 3/4 inch by 12 inches depending on the size of flower you want to make.  Then roll it up all the way.  I used my pinking shears to give it dimension.

 Then you need to cut a piece of felt that is 14 inches by 1 1/2 inches.  Then fold it in half and using the pinking shears cut slits from the folded side in about 1/4 inch apart.  Make sure not to cut all the way to the edge just about an 1/8th of an inch before the edge After that, start rolling the slitted piece around the wrapped piece.
When you get the flower situated like you want it, add a little glue to the underside layers-either fabric glue or hot glue, or both. Then arrange your leaves and glue to the underside of the flower.
 Now you have a lovely flower to add to a headband, a bag embellishment, or to make any little old thing more lovely!
If you exclude the center piece and just roll up the slitted piece it becomes a whole different flower entirely.  Too much fun!
