Felt Daisy tutorial and pattern

Daisies are so cute and I love the way they smell, so of course I wanted to make some Daisies for the spring celebration. These flowers, unlike the Poppies and the Camelias, require a lot of cutting. I made a template just in case the first way I will be showing doesn't turn out as easy for you. That way with the pattern you'll have a little extra help.

– Your color choice of felt (I used 3 9″x12″sheets in different colors, but I didn't even use half of it)
– Cut the pieces:

– For the center: 1 inch circle piece
– For the petals: 12 inch long by 1 1/4 inch wide.
– For the out-center : 3 inch long by 1/2 inch wide

– Thread, needle and scissors.
Hot glue gun.
– Pearls for the center of your flower.
– Download the pattern in case you need it (You will find 4 different sizes for you to play with! )

**The download on the left is a PDF format file, so you will need to have Abobe Reader installed on your PC or MAC. Without the program you will not be able to download or preview the file. If you have trouble please visit this link, because each browser works differently. If you are having trouble downloading the PDF file try the .ZIP file on the right, you will need Winzip or a program that can read .ZIP files to open it.

For the center piece, you will need to stitch around the circle piece and place the pearl inside the little pouch. Just like shown in the image below.

As for the small petals in the center, I cut one of the edges with a zig-zag scissors and then made vertical cuts along the width. Roll it around the center piece and stitch to secure it.

As for the large petals make 1/3 inch vertical cuts along the width, and then round the edges. If this sounds too hard you can just download the template and mark the petals along the 12 inch length of the felt piece.

Roll it around the center and the small petals piece once it's all rolled, secure by sewing around it. If you'd like you can replace the sewing by using a hot glue gun, but it depends on what you want to use the flowers for, if you'd like to wash them at some point I would recommend you to use thread and needle instead of hot glue gun =]

I hope you all enjoy making these pretty flowers. We have only one more felt flower to go and then we will move to another material. Felt is so much fun, maybe I will throw in an extra felt project before we move on, just for the fun of it! I hope you all have a wonderful day =]
