I am a felt junkie. Like totally obsessed, must have 50 million colors of good quality felt in my craft supply at all times, obsessed. I love that felt is so versatile, doesn’t fray, comes in a wide varitey of pretty colors, and even for the “good stuff” is pretty inexpensive. (By the way, you must use wool felt. Check places like etsy or your local quilt shop.)
You have seen me use felt in a lot of projects.
Today I am sharing my beloved felt flower patterns. The ones I use for everything. Headbands, baby sacks, wreaths. And anything else I can get my hands on. Yes, they are handcut, and a little more work than a diecut, but if you aren’t mass producing, this shouldn’t be a problem.
I embellish my flowers with millinary flowers, rhinestones, buttons, or just handstitch them together. But, most typically, I add something to the center and use hot glue. Cause, I love hotglue and I really dislike handstitching. These are perfect for headbands, as I have included multiple sizes, creating an easy layered look.
The scalloped circle makes the perfect bottom layer.
While the 5 petal basic flower is ideal for all the folded flower tutorials that are out there.
For Felt Flowers:

1. Cut out your pattern.
2. Pin to felt.
3. Cut out as many flowers are you would like.
4. Layer multiple flowers on top of eachother, in all different sizes. The more the merrier. Promise.
6. Add handcut leaves, if you choose.
Check back on Monday when I will be sharing how to make felt bows.
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend! And happy flower making! As always, let me know if you have any questions.
