This tutorial will show you how to make felt roses in a few quick steps. These roses can be used as embellishments in clothing, for decorating pillows, for making a bridal bouquet and so on.
Glimpse of the Result:
Cut out a broad piece of felt. The length of the strip can be 14 – 18 cm for a regular size rose.
Fold the felt strip in half and start gathering them at the edge using a needle as shown.
Make spaced out stitched for the entire strip.
Now just hold the start of the strip and wrap it to get a rose structure.
Secure the rose by making a stitch at the end of the strip and cut off the thread.
You can make a wreath, bouquet or a ball of such roses…
These are good for arranging in a vase as well. Only thing is that, in case you want to arrange these roses in a vase, you will in Step 4 wrap the gathered strip around a string and then use some floral tape for the stem.
