How to: Felt {Valentine}Rosette Flower Pin

 

After seeing some of the wonderful felt heart wreaths around in blog world, like Amy’s and Robin’s………I started thinking, maybe I could make a pin, using the same concept.

I started with a 9×12 piece of red felt that I bought at Michaels. Grabbed a glass that was about 3″ in diameter, and traced 6 circles on my piece of felt, then cut them out.

 

Cut out Felt Circles

 

Next you can follow the steps in my picture. 

 

(you also click the picture and choose to view in a larger size for detail)

  • Take one circle, fold it in half,
  • then in half again.
  • Hand stitch thru the bottom point enough to keep it folded.
  • Then do the same with each of the circles. I just went from one to the next pulling my thread tightly to keep them all together(I just placed them randomly around each other, not in a stack…it will make sense when you’re making it, you basically want the tips sewn together). When I had all 6 pieces attached I put a few more stitches in to keep them nice and tight together.
  • Next sew them onto a little pin backing (you can these at Michaels in the jewelry making section).

Pin It

 

These were so easy and I love how they turned out! The red makes them perfect for Valentine’s Day!

You can wear them on a sweater or jacket, t-shirt, on a bag……or give as a gift!

You could even use them as embellishments on scarves, hats, or pillows – oh, you get the picture!……just sew them right on instead of pining them on!

    LOL yes Amanda……my hands…acrylic nails. I get permanent french, they use pink acrylic and white acrylic on the tips, so they don't have to be painted, so they stay looking nice all the time! I love them and have done this for years.
