Felt Flower Tutorial

These are my favorite flowers to make – quick, easy and cheerful. All you need is 2 small pieces of felt (one for the petals, one for the leaves), matching thread and a needle.

First, cut 6 petals using a quarter as a template. Then cut 2 leaves from the other color (I did mine freehand).

Then fold each petal in half and stack all six.

Then stitch through all 6 petals at once.

And stitch through again, making a circle with the thread.

Then pull the thread tight – the petals will spread out and form a flower, and you may have to arrange the petals a bit to make them look nice. Once they look good, make a knot to secure the flower.

Attach the leaves to the bottom of the flower with a few stitches.

Ta-da! You made a flower!
