I've got a quick tutorial for your today on how to make fabric flowers from felt. You know, the cheap craft felt sheets you buy. These are super simple and so fun to make.
I know you've seen these a lot out there in cyberspace, but I haven't seen any quite like mine. My quick tutorial will show you how to make a large felt fabric flower that looks a lot like a zinnia or maybe a dahlia. I've got some you can see in the final pictures that look like daisies, too. Ok, so here we go!
Step 1: Cut the strips for your Flower Center and Flower Petals out of the craft felt fabric sheets or if you want to go a more expensive route, use wool felt.
The dimensions shown above are for making a large flower, but you can vary the width of each piece however you want to make up all kinds and sizes of flowers. I also used a 1" to 1.5" wide piece for the Flower Center and 1.5" to 2.5" for the Flower Petals on a lot of small or medium flowers. Just play around with it and see what you come up with, too!
Step 3: Cut the petals into the strips.
Step 4: Cut the Flower Center.
Step 5: Roll and glue the Flower Center.
Voila! A Felt Fabric Flower!
I'll show you very soon why I made all these Beautiful Flowers (hint, hint)! Aren't they sewVery pretty!?
See how you can vary the center of the flower? You can use different colors or you can omit the step where you cut the center and simply just roll and glue it up.
Have fun making flowers and have a great day!
