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.

cut out many petal shapes from the felt in the shape of rose petals

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.

make about 8 petals in varying sizes ; cut out calyx and leaves

Curl the top dome shape with your hand and some wetness.

roll the rose petals one by one in the shape of the rose

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.

first roll the big round petal around metal wire

Place the rest of the petals, overlapping each other and stitch in place. Add the sepal and then cover the wire with green tape.

  1. Hi Paula
    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.

  2. I’m hoping to make some flowers for a felted wool cloche hat. What are the basic dimensions for the pieces for Method 4?

  3. You are so AWESOME!!! You show people how to make felt flowers, witch is so AWESOME!


    P.S. I think felt is the best thing to sew with to.
