Today, we have a tutorial for felt flowers, but they could really be done with any stiff fabric (and you can always stiffen your fabric of choice!).
I did two versions, but there are so many possibilities here. I messed up a little bit on the gray flower (you can see the thread in two places), but for the sake of getting this blog done while dinner is cooking- we're going with it! These flowers are insanely easy to make and once you've done that you can use them to adorn anything you'd like... purses, hair pieces, onesies, aprons... you get the idea :)
These two versions were made in two different ways which I'll detail throughout the blog.

Next, trace your shape on to the felt/fabric. If you want to do the mixed-color flower, you'll need 5 large petals in each color. If you want to do the grey flower, you'll need 12 of the same size. You would use 5 on the bottom rung, 4 on the middle and 3 on the top. After they're all traced cut them out.
I used a sharpie to trace mine and then after they were cut, I flipped them so that the sharpie-colored side would be underneath.
