Intro: Felt Flowers
Step 1: What You Need
• 5 ovals
• 6 slightly smaller circles
• 2 stars 1 bigger than the other
• 1 circle for the base
• 1 tiny circle for the middle
(Look in pic)
•needle and thread
Thread all 5 of the ovals onto the thread. Use 2 stitches for each one.
When you've done them all put the needle through the 1st petal again so it makes a circle. Then pull it tighter so the petals tilt upwards but theres still a gap in the middle. Tie the thread.
Sew the flower onto the circle base. If you sew it the other way than its trying to go then it will be a flatter flower at the end, thats what i did.
Now sew the 6 circles the same way with a smaller gap in the middle than before. Then sew it onto the base in the middle of the other petals.
Sew on the biggest star with an x stitch and sew the smaller one on top with the tiny circle right in the middle. Last, you can sew on beads or a button for the middle or just leave it with the circle it looks fine.
If you want it to be a hair clip, cut 2 slits in another circle of felt and slide the clip through. Then sew that circle onto the bottom of the flower. You can also make it a badge or sew them onto a hat or top or whatever you want.
