Method 1 of making DIY Felt Roses
To make this ROSE flower you just need to roll some felt. Let me tell you how.
Cut out a large circle from felt.
Draw a spiral shape starting from the center as in the picture below.
Make petal shapes along the spiral lines ( inside).
Start cutting it out
This is what you have.
Start rolling the felt piece starting from the middle.
Glue or stitch in place.
Method 2 of making DIY Felt Roses
This is a more simpler version of the first rose.
Draw the spiral as in the picture below.
Cut it out.
Start rolling this as I did earlier, starting from the middle.
Method 3 of making DIY Felt Roses
For this felt rose DIY, cut out a long strip of felt with a rounded but flat petal and then subsequently shaped petals without cutting them out separately.
Start rolling from the straight edge petal.
When you start rolling the petals remember to pinch the bottom edge into a small pleat.Stitch in place.
Roll the whole thing till you finish the full fabric length.
Add a sepal made from green felt and a leaf.
Method 4 of making DIY Felt Roses
To make this rose flower, cut out petals – a lot of petals with a dome shape at the top and one semi-circle to make the bud in the center.
For this rose flower I have cut out 7 such petals – they are all different sizes with four of them slightly bigger than the rest 3.
Curl the top dome shape with your hand and some wetness.
Curl the oval-shaped petal into the center bud . Stitch in place. You can curl this over floral wire, if you want a stand up rose flower.
Place the rest of the petals, overlapping each other and stitch in place. Add the sepal and then cover the wire with green tape.

This depends on the size of the flower you want to make. I made the petals with felt pieces with 1 to 1 1/4 inch width and 1 1/2 inch length. Try cutting out paper in the petal shapes and gather to see if the final flower is the size you want.
I’m hoping to make some flowers for a felted wool cloche hat. What are the basic dimensions for the pieces for Method 4?
: ) That is nice. Happy to be of help
