Flower Felt Pin Sewing Instructions


felt flower pin sewingRepeat this step around the flower, pulling gently on the floss as you go (don't forget to keep holding onto the tail). You can see how the petals will pleat and ruffle up.

When the floss is snugged up, tie the ends together in an overhand knot a few times to secure the floss. The photo shows how it should look when you are done.

felt flower centerRepeat this wrapping process with the other petals. This photo shows the medium petal set gathered up.

Layer your petals together and sew together using your preferred center embellishment. If using a button (like the yellow flower in the top photo), use a 4-5 inch length of bright yellow floss and stitch through one hole, through the middle of the flower, and then back up through the flower and the second hole, tie a knot and trim. For the center of the bright pink flower, I just used yellow floss with no button. When using a bead, stitch up through the bottom of the flower, through the bead and back down and tie off the floss on the back of the flower.


felt flower backTo finish the flower, sew the circle onto the back using matching thread and a small running stitch. Be careful to only catch the back side of the flower so your stitches don't show on the front. Sew on the pin back and you are done!


felt flower finishedHere is the flower finished with a sparkly bead center. You can also sew these flowers onto a headband or sew them to pillows. If you make one, please send me a photo! I would love to see what ideas you come up with.


Happy Sewing!
