Wool Flower Tutorial

Wool flower 2

Wool flower 00WoolflowerWolflower

It has been a long week. David was doing better, then all the sudden started to do worse. I think it is just wearing on him. And on me, I have to do a lot for him and getting up in the middle of the night and early morning to help him, lots of appointments (which I hate). But you know even in the midst of it all, I have need to create something. Maybe even more then normal. I even got my little front room silhouette Christmas tree done (I will share soon).

I decided this pretty beret needed a little something. I wanted to make a wool flower fast and easy. I hope you do to.

1, Cut two circles of fabric. I decided what size I wanted my pin to be and then made a circle a little smaller. I used wool and left the edges raw.

2. Take a circle and fold in in half, but with one side sticking out a little farther then the other and pin.

3. With a needle and thread, run a basting stitch through the fold and pull and gather. Keep running the needle through and pulling till you get the gather you like. Knot off thread. 

4, You want the shorter front half of the circle gathered and the larger back half flat.

5, Gather the other circle and knot off.

6, Now sew the two gathered edges together and sew a button onto the center of the flower.

7, Sew a pin-back on and be done !!!!!


By the way be checking my blog, in a couple of days I will be having  a give-away xoxoxo

I had to try this right away. The paper I found seems to be thicker or crisper than what you used - yours seems almost transparent. Also, the edges were hard to roll. I tried using a knitting needle to get it to curl better, but no luck. I ended up having to fold and crease and then relaxing that as I rolled. So mine look more like roses, I guess. But I love making them. Yes, I am serious about my paper-crafting.

I've been catching up on your blog today. Sooo many wonderful and creative ideas, Clarice. The flower is such a nice idea, and looks wonderful on the hat, and what a truly lovely young model you have too!

I've been holding a good thought for all of you. I hope David will come through this time with all his health fully restored. It's hard, I know.

Love to all of you.

Can I suggest spell check and grammar check?
worst = worse
mist = midst
to = too

What a cute idea Clarice, thanks for taking the time to do a tutorial. I haven't been visiting lately so was very sorry to hear about David's accident and so pleased he is on the mend. Adore the pretty 'think of me' teacup and toning jug by the way. Take care, love Eli.

Your wool flower is so sweet - perfect for your hat.
I hope all goes well with you and yours as you move through days a bit different than normal.

This is sooo cute! I adore it! Just right for a few little things I need to embellish! Cute!

I am so sorry that David is having a difficult time! Please make sure you rest when he does and don't worry about the little things that you "think" need done. Just making it through the day is reason for celebration!

Please, consider attending our virtual tea party on Saturday at Lazy Bee Farm blog! I think you deserve a little gal pal time! :)

All the best!
