You’ve seen these type of flowers on bags and coats. Here at Creative Impressions In Clay
we’re all about Fun, Funky & Functional! Let’s do a funky version of the layered felt flower.
3 colors of Felt
(I purchased my felt at Ornamentea but it is no longer available.
I found another source online.)
Buttons-1″ Tie Dye Button, .5″ Dot Baby Button
Flower Pattern-I made my own
1.5″ Pin Back
Optional-beads and other embellishments
Started with a pattern. I chose a 4 petal flower in 3 different sizes-4.5″, 3.5″ and 3″. I cut my template out of index stock. This way they can be used many times.
Trace around your pattern on the back side of your felt. Cut out all 3 sizes each in a different color.
Thread your upholstery needle (a needle with an eye large enough for your yarn) with your choice of yarn. I used eyelash yarn, which has it’s own issues when used for stitching.
Use a blanket stitch
or whip stitch on the edges and sew around all three flower pieces.
After you have stitched the edges place the flower shapes in order small to large. You can choose to place them in the same direction or alternate directions as I did.
Center the stacked buttons on the flower and sew in place.
Turn your flower over and glue on a pin back.
You now have a Fun, Funky&Functional Flower Pin!
Come back for more 12 Days of Christmas and I’ll show you another project and
how I used my flower pin.
