How cute are these Ruffled Felt Flower's?
Want to make one or a bunch?
You will need two colors of felt one for the flower and one for the leaves.
To start out you need to cut one long strip of the felt for your flower.
Cut slits down the the strip to about a half an inch from the bottom.
With a thread and needle starting at the bottom corner sew a upside down "V" in each rectangle.
After you sew each "V" or petal pull the thread tight to make the petal shape.
Continue till you have sewn each petal and this is what you will have.
Turn your petals into a circle forming your flower and stitch in place as you turn.
Now you have your flower make sure to leave the thread attached.
Cut a rectangle out of your other color of felt for your leaves.
Sew a upside down "V" in your leaf.
Pull your thread tight and stitch in place on the flower.
If you want to add a bead to the center of the flower leave the thread and needle attached and push the needle through the middle back of the flower.
Sew your bead in place and your flower is done!
Use them to embellish things like a phone cozy....or add it to an alligator clip for a cute hair accessory.
I made this one using the pattern I made Here. I used two pieces of felt for each pattern piece and used a blanket stitch to stitch it all together. I didn't use the sewing machine for this one at all. This is the perfect size for those toy cell phones so I'm going to save this for a Christmas gift with a toy cell phone.
Add it to an alligator clip for a cute hair accessory.
