Rosy Posy Flower Felt Clip

Supplies:
Rosy Posy Flower Template
Various scraps of felt (acrylic or wool)
Scissors
Embroidery needle
Coordinating embroidery floss
Snap clips (I used 1″ ones, can find some here)

Directions:
1. Using the template, cut out all your flower pieces. It’s also easy to just go for it and cut without the template.

2. Layer all but one of the large flower pieces on top of each other (from largest to smallest), and with your needle and embroidery floss, hand sew on X on the center to join all the pieces together. Pull the thread taut and knot on the back of the flower, so that the felt will bunch up to give it the “flowery” effect. rosy posy felt flowerrosy posy felt flower
3. Fold the leaves together, place the bottom half of one leaf sandwiched into the other, proceed to use a running stitch to stitch around the perimeter of both leaves. rosy posy felt flower
4. Center your clip on the remaining flower felt piece (this the back piece of the flower), cut a tiny slit to put your snap clip through. Insert tongue of snap clip and snap clip close. Place bottom portion of the leaves on top, layer on flower, and then with a running stitch around the perimeter of the flower, join together the back felt piece and the main flower together. rosy posy felt flowerrosy posy felt flowerYou could also use different types of clips with the flowers; French barrettes can easily be glued onto the back. The template attached is for a larger sized flower, but you can most certainly enlarge or shrink to make larger or smaller flowers. If you have a baby with not very much hair, instead of a clip, sandwich elastic where the snap clip would be.

See this listing so long ago with a baby True. I finally have a pattern for you and instructions, so now you can make your own.  I loved making and selling these flower clips (and my crowns and dolls), but once baby Soul and Glow got added into the family, there was no time to sew for shop purposes. My felt flowers and other felt creations, along with  sewing is what started this blog, and it’s been a completely fun and unexpected journey ever since.

I hope you have fun making these flowers. If you want to see other floral things I have been making lately, follow me on instagram (@cakiesblog) or just check #cakiesflowers. I’m also excited to be going to Singapore to share my love for felt floral making!
