Today we are going to keep the spring celebration with another felt flower tutorial, this time poppy flowers, they might not look exactly like Poppies but to me that was the real flower they resemble the most =] I've made these kinds of flowers for a very long time but I never really named them, so there you go.

These ones are super easy to make, kind of like the Camelias. But actually, these ones require less sewing and if you want they can involve no sewing at all by using hot glue.

I made mine in different purple shades with yellow bead centers, after our wedding I was sick of Purple (because I worked on so many Purple projects) but now I am loving Purple again =] YAY!

list of materials

  2. Thread, needle, and scissors
  3. Hot glue gun (in case you don't want to sew it)
  4. Little beads or embellishments for the center of your flower.

THE PROCESS

Making these are super easy.

  • Start by cutting the shapes from the pattern you just downloaded.
  • In my case, I like to use a pin to fold all the ends towards the center and pin them together (as shown in the center image below)
  • then I secured the petals with a few stitches like it shows below.

For the center, since I'd rather sew the beads than glue them just because if I wash the flowers the beads will stay in place longer, so basically I made an X with the beads in the center.

If you want, you can make the flowers just by placing a drop of hot glue in the center and then folding all the petals to the inside, finishing your flower by adding beads to the center. It's all about what you feel more comfortable doing and what you want to use the flower for.

They are so easy to make and would look adorable in a headband, hairpins or just to decorate your favorite space!

      I did, too! They would look adorable sewn onto a vine! Maybe for a pillow or wall hanging?

    Your designs are lovely. I admire your attitude, too. As an ESL teacher, I know how scary it can be to put yourself out there where people will read what you write. Sometimes you are afraid that someone might be laughing at you. Believe me, darling, if they are it is because they are jealous of your incredible talent and beautiful soul! Thank you for sharing!

    These are so cute! Would you sew these onto a dress and let it go through the wash? It would stay nice? I have been searching for some kind of flower I can put on clothes permanently and still have them washable.

    • Joy
      Joy says:

      Hi Deanna, I think that would depend on the kind of felt or fleece you are using, just read on their care instructions because each material is different. I made a pillow with some of these flowers but on fleece and I made sure I could wash it before I purchased the material. Have a good day! =]

    Do you think these flowers would be cute just using the first pattern and not folding them?

    Flo says:

    Thank you so much. I like your use of beads. The cross is just right. You are a great teacher. Your English is perfect! Not sure when you got married but very best wishes all the way.

    Love the simple pattern. Will be using this for crafts in Activities at the nursing home I work at. Will substitute green buttons for beads for the men. This will mean over 70 flowers for residents and staff
