Felt Flower Pin Tutorial

Felt Flower Pin Tutorial by A Crafty Arab

This past weekend I attended Women’s Wellness Weekend at Camp Orkila.

I had some free time and took a class on felted flowers. I photographed the process to share below.

The steps were so easy, and the supplies are only a few, that you can make these felt flower pins in little time.  Make them for girl scout swaps! Use them as a fundraiser! Hand them out at the next Eid party! So many options.

Supplies
Felt
Needle
Thread
Scissors

Start by cutting out five felt circles. Mine were about the size of falafel.

Fold each circle in half and cut across to create half moons.

Thread your needle and sew across the bottom of one half moon. About the 2/3 point, add a second half moon and sew them togheter.

I’m going to go make falafel because now I can’t stop thinking about them.
