Introduction: Loopy No Sew Flower Tutorial

Supplies
Felt, 30" long x 4-5" wide
Button (preferrably a shank style about and inch round"
Hot glue gun
Scissors
Measuring tape
Pin back

Step 1: Cut Strip

Cut a piece of felt 2" wide by 30" long. Fold the felt in half widthwise and hot glue the bottom open edge of the felt.

Step 2: Fringe Felt

Make small cuts long the folded edge of the felt (roughly an eighth to a quarter of an inch wide). It will look like fringe. Make sure to leave about a quarter of an inch uncut along the unfolded edge.

Step 3: Glue

Put a line of about an inch long of hot glue along the bottom (unfolded) edge of the fringe and start to roll up the felt into a circle around itself. Continue gluing and rolling the fringe until the felt forms a circular shape.

Step 4: Glue Button

Push back the fringe in the center of the flower to make room for your button. Hot glue the back of the button and place it in the center. Make sure to hold it in place til the glue is cooled.

Step 5: Print Pattern

Download the pattern and cut one heart and one circle out of the felt

Step 6: Glue Backer on Flower

Glue the circle to the back of the flower.

Step 7: Add Pin

Glue the pin back to the center of the circle. Next, glue the heart over the pin to cover up the the icky oozy glue that comes threw the holes.

Thank you for the wonderful idea and tutorial! I just made one of these, but instead of gluing, I needle-felted it. I used the crew-neck collar of a merino wool sweater that I felted in the washer so it was already sewn in half, and the button came from a felted wool blazer I bought at a thrift shop for 50 cents. These are going to go on Christmas gifts instead of bows this year!
