Folded Felt Flowers

It’s time for another flower tutorial!

I love this new technique! We’ll be pairing it with some old classics to make a layered look that’s fun to play with colors, fabrics and buttons!



Start by cutting at least 6 circles of felt. The ones I used in this example are approximately
2 1/4″ circles! Just grab something round and trace away! I used a lid from my girls play tea set!

You’ll be folding each circle into a burrito!

Sew two straight stitched with your sewing machine through the middle.

Now cut between the stitching and now you have two sections!

Lovely lovely petals!

Cut one more circle the same size as your original circles and pin on your petals!

Time to sew!

Yuck!!! This is what it looks like when you forget to put your foot down while sewing! No need to worry! We’ll be covering up our stitches! Thank goodness!

Now we’ll throw on some of our past techniques like our Heather Bailey Flowers! Cut a few more circles out of fun fabric and grab yourself a button!


Start layering them on!

Ooops! You caught me! I traded out the red button for a yellow and stitched it all together! And now it’s up to you how you want to finish it! Glue on a broach pin or an alligator clip or glue it to a headband!



Fun, bright and endless possibilities! I also think they would look great on a package, clustered on a throw pillow or on a frame!
