"The Rachel" Felt Flower Tutorial

I told you.
Once I find something I like
I make it a million different ways.
Here's my third,
and probably last (at least for a while)
felt flower tutorial.

This one
just so happens
to be my favorite yet.
See it's a good thing I didn't stop after flower brooch number 1 or 2 :)

Again, I had a hard time figuring out a name for it
other than felt flower #3
(which is way too boring)
so I named it after my friend Rachel who I made it for.

-Hot glue gun
-straight pin for brooch

Step 1:
Cut 3 petal shapes out of card stock to use as your template.
One large, one medium, and one small.

Step 2:
Using your template as a guide, cut out...

-8 large petals
-4 medium petals
-4 small petals

Step 3:
Cut a circle out of your felt to use as the base of your flower.

Step 4:
Begin gluing your large petals to your base (the circle from step 3) in the pattern shown above.

Step 5:
Hot glue your second layer of large petals in the pattern above.

Step 6:
Glue the medium petals to your flower in the pattern shown above.

Step 7:
Glue your last layer (the small petals) in the pattern shown above.

Step 8:
This is the hardest step!
Decide what to use for the center of your flower.
You could use the same color felt as your flower,

a lighter felt center,

a darker felt center

or even a button!
Decisions, decisions...

Step 9:
Glue finished flower to a straight pin (or bar pin...whatever they are called these days) to transform it into a brooch.

Now pin on your favorite,
oooo and awww over your awesome new accessory!

And just because I love you guys

Traditional banks are not going after this lucrative loaning market, yet. The credit sums are too little and the pivot is too short.

On the off chance that you have awful credit, it might be difficult to get an advance through your bank.

The most promising feature of this gated community is its adjacency to Rawalpindi Ring Road. The newly proposed Ring Road Rawalpindi is right next to the Gate 1 of Rudn Enclave. Also, this project grants smooth and easy access to all the major commercial zones, residential areas, recreational sports, and other important facilities such as hospitals, educational facilities, etc. RE Rawalpindi enjoys a strategic location on Adiyala Road, Rawalpindi, adjacent to Lahore – Islamabad Motorway M2, CPEC Route, and the New Islamabad International Airport. Moreover, shortly, when the proposed Rawalpindi Ring Road gets developed, the worth of RE would immensely increase.
