Felt Flowers (Sunflowers)




These were so fun and easy to make. I admit they took a little time, but not too bad. So if you want to make one of your own keep reading!

Start by cutting a circle for the center (about 2 inches). Next cut your felt squares, about 18 of the large and 12 of the small.


Cut you squares into petal shapes. (This picture is obviously from another tutorial, but I forgot to take a picture of the petal shapes before i sewed them on the sunflower, but you cut them the same).


Now fold the sides of each petal in and sew into place with a couple of stitches.
Continue all the way around making sure they're really close together, even overlapping a tiny bit. Don't worry if you don't use all the petals- no one's counting.


Cut two circles of brown felt. One about 2 inches and one a little smaller. Clip the edges all the way around.


Layer the smaller cirle on top of the larger and set in the middle of the flower. Stitch around in a circle in the center. As you pull your stitches tight the edges of your brown cirles will pop up.


Sew some beads in the center and you're done!


Now make a couple more in varying shades and sizes.

  1. It's nice to see that you sewed them. Other tutorials have you glue them, but that always went against my common sense. :)
