Felt Rose Tutorial

blogged by me domestic goddess On 1/25/2010 04:36:00 PM
This weekend I had my crop, and instead of scrapping I went armed with piles of felt! Sue has made some gorgeous Hello Kitty pencil cases for her girls, and I started playing with flower making.
Today I am going to show you how to make the easiest, prettiest, most gorgeous felt roses! I have seen these in paper, but I just love them in felt.

Go grab felt, scissors, pins, glue and a pencil
Cut a 4" felt square. (try experimenting with different size of sqaure for a smaller or larger rose)

Now lightly pencil a spiral onto your felt

and cut out

The magic starts now... start rolling the felt spiral from the inside out

Once you have rolled all the felt up, glue the end or add a stitch

There you have it, the easiest and quickest felt rose. Just add a decorative pearl pin in the middle or a pearl stud. Try making these roses using paper and even fabric!

I have plans for my roses, which I will share with you on Friday; a little valentine project
Do share your roses with me, by posting a link in the comments.

Tomorrow I will share a couple of layouts from the weekend.
Thanks for stopping by

    Thanks for all the sweet inspiration...any news on the book I ordered in December? I wasn't aware {my mistake perhaps} that it was a pre-order & am really in need of a sketch book for 2009 & was hoping to get cracking on it...Please could you let me know when I can expect it. Parcels usually take a month to ship to South Africa. Thanks ;-D
