Felt Flowers are lovely. I have some felt materials in my crafts boxes – somewhere – and there are so many free tutorials available online.
So I visited a few blogs that provides tutorials, and I was fascinated with I Could Make That. It made me wonder whether I could bear doing the small cuttings. Well, actually even the drawing seem a chore – I have never before attempted to do small stuffs with felt. So, it’s quite a challenge to challenge myself to try.
It was a Saturday night, while watching tv, that I drew the templates on an old label card. I try, as much as possible to recycle everything, but I fear that keeping used things aside for future uses will one day turn me into a hoarder!
Anyway, I used 3 types of coins – the 5, 10 and 20 sen. Really, I dread doing cuttings with scissors especially on thick paper – so tedious. Still, I managed to cut 3 templates.
Then, I traced the templates onto felts of different colours. Afterwards, I cut the felt. Before I knew it, I have actually cut a lot! The cutting process was not as taxing as I thought!
The sewing part was fun as the flowers came into shape. For the centre of the flower, I experimented with a few items such as buttons, crystal beads and poymer beads. I also mixed and matched the felt petals.
My favourites are the last two and I turned them into hairclips. I think they would be lovely gifts to my 2 daughters and 8 darling nieces.
