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.
just so happens
to be my favorite yet.
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
Cut 3 petal shapes out of card stock to use as your template.
One large, one medium, and one small.
Using your template as a guide, cut out...
-8 large petals
-4 medium petals
-4 small petals
Cut a circle out of your felt to use as the base of your flower.
Begin gluing your large petals to your base (the circle from step 3) in the pattern shown above.
Hot glue your second layer of large petals in the pattern above.
Glue the medium petals to your flower in the pattern shown above.
Glue your last layer (the small petals) in the pattern shown above.
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!
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
