Felt Flower Brooch

I bought this flower brooch from a charity shop but if you wanted to make one for yourself, I have worked out how to make them. Felt is very good value if you purchase children's craft packs from Hobby Craft and it is lovely to work with. It's easy to cut and easy to sew.

This felt flower brooch was £6.50 and it is from the Fair Trade section in Oxfam where they sell new goods made by communities in countries which receive funds from Oxfam. It is rather large and I love the colours but I wanted to make my own to be able to give as gifts.

To make your own, you will need:

Felt balls
Felt squares in toning colours
Heart cookie cutter
Brooch clip
Needle and thread

Felt comes in nearly every colour you can imagine.

Choose two fabulous toning colours for your flower.

Simply take your felt and cut out 5 hearts using the heart cookie cutter as a template. You will need 5 large heart shapes for the back petal section.

You then make 2 smaller five-petal flowers and choose a felt ball which matches.

Sew the two little flowers together with the felt ball and then attach them to the back petals. Sew them all together and hide all your construction stitches which a felt circle. The last thing you need to do is to sew on a bar brooch clasp.

Ta dah! Pretty felt flowers for pennies.

Have fun and pop back soon.
