|the very pretty, very easy felt flowers :)|
i made several different sizes as i wanted to give all the different types a go and see which i liked best. i made from 1.5" x 9" to 4" x 12".
|the starting felt pieces|
|then you simply fold them in half and cut at intervals not|
quite through to the other side.
|then you roll the cut felt and hot glue a piece onto the|
bottom that will be trimmed into the circle as the base
of the flower
|to the smaller ones i added some leaves :)|
|a closer look at the completed flowers:)|
outcome: awesome! these were completely satisfying to make and also a little addictive! it was really cool to see how the different widths of fabric changed the outcome of the flower. i REALLY like the smaller width flowers and their tighter petals, they look so cute :) if you have felt hanging around, you need to seriously try these, they are so easy and so completely adorable ... now, for all the projects i can use them on, not to mention the gifts i plan to top them with.
a big thank you to crystal at little bit funky for her 20 minute craft felt flowers, i was really pushed for time today so i truly appreciated this short, but totally inspiring and very doable tutorial.
