Finally, I sew the base with simple stitches through the whole felt role. You could also just tightly wrap the base with tape. I then stick a skewer in the bottom for the stem. Abby is holding it by the “stem” in the picture below.
The second flower is a similar method, but you do not need to fold the felt in half. First, you cut your felt about 9″x2″. Then, you cut slits along one edge about 1/4″ apart. Cut another color felt a bit shorter.
Next, your roll the smaller one up and then roll the larger one around it.
Again, you can sew it our tape it at the base and insert a skewer.
I did a couple with some added embellishment – adding jewels in the center of one by wrapping the felt around it, and sewing a little flower, lace embellishment at the center of another.
