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.

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!

  1. This is just lovely! What a wonderful way to make a plain old bag or sweater bright and festive. Valentine's Day is my favorite holiday- this project may have to go on my to-do list.

  3. Now that is just adorable! OK…for me, the crafting idiot…did you stack all 6 pieces right on top of each other in a row and then fan them out once sewn?

    Your collage how-to is so pretty!
