Felt Daisy flower: FREE tutorial and pattern – Botanical felt

Today I am continuing the Spring celebration with another felt flower tutorial! This time we will be making felt daisies, they require a little bit more work because the petals are smaller. But if you cut the pieces with a cutting machine, they are a breeze to make!

These daisies, unlike the Poppies and the Camelias, require a lot of cutting, so prepare yourself! BUT the result is completely worth it (if you ask me!)

Oh! And remember to scroll all the way to the bottom to download the pattern!

I made this template just in case the first way I explain doesn't turn out as easy for you. That way with the pattern you'll have a little extra help.

List of materials

  1. Your color choice of felt (I used 3 9″x12″sheets in different colors, but I didn't even use half of it)
  2. Thread, needle, and scissors
  3. Pinking Shears
  4. Hot glue gun (in case you don't want to sew it)
  5. A pearl or embellishment for the center of your flower

THE PROCESS

Cut the pieces that you will need for the body of the flower:

  1. For the center: 1-inch circle piece
  2. For the petals: 12 inches long by 1 1/4 inch wide.
  3. For the petals around the center : 3 inches long by 1/2 inch wide
To make it easier for you I also included a PDF pattern that you can download at the end of the post!

MAKE THE CENTER

For the center of the flower, you will need to stitch around the circle piece and place the pearl inside the little pouch.

Once you have the pearl there, pull the strings and you will have a perfect center for your flower, the bigger the pearl the bigger the center will be.

MAKE THE FLOWER

When you lay down your pieces you will have a long piece (12 inches long by 1 1/4 inch wide.) that you need to cut every1/4 inch. And the small inner petals, that go around your center, for those I just used pinking shears to cut the edge and cut towards the inside on each little inside point. If you prefer, I also created a template that has different sizes for you to text, just download them at the bottom of the post.

Roll the small piece around the center and either stitch or use hot glue to secure it.

Once you have that piece secured, you can start rolling the petals just like you did before. I like stitching mine because I will use them in a project that I want to be able to wash, and it seems like the stick ones do better with water.

They are definitely not that hard, and they look so cute!!

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!

Hope you enjoyed and stay tuned for some more flower tutorials! I hope you all have a wonderful day =]
