Fabric glue is the devil y’all! I have never found one that doesn’t take all day to dry not to mention the sticky mess i always create with it sorry i just hate it! So in my tutorials you will only find the amazing glue gun !
When I want to learn anything new i always go to pinterest to find me a great tutorial which i sometimes struggle with because i need 100% beginner steps when learning ! So hopefully that’s what i will provide here. Let’s get started !!
- Glue gun with glue sticks
The first flower we will be doing is what i call the “fringe flower”. All steps with be listed and will follow with pictures for each step.
1. Cut out a long rectangular shape you can make any size you like bigger across bigger the flower.
2. Lay down the felt flat put a thin line of hot glue on the outside edge fold in 1/2 and put a little pressure so the glue is secure.
3. Start cutting at the end making cuts on the closed side of the felt the further you go down to the glued part the better it will give you less bulk at the end.
4. Keep cutting your notches until you’re at the end.
5. I then lay flat and put a little hot glue to start rolling it up. As I’m rolling it to the end i also put hot glue about every inch or so just makes it easier and more sturdy.
6. When you have rolled to the end simply fluff your flowers and your done !!!
I will be putting these on pic frames, scarfs, headbands etc..
Next flower is what i call “Curly Q”.
1. Cut a felt square.
2. Round it’s edges all four.
3. Start cutting into the felt in a circle direction you do not have to be picky or uniform.
4. When you have cut around all the way to the end you will have a little round piece left what i call the tail just leave it and then you can hot glue that to the bottom of your flower when your done.
5. Then roll the felt up from end to inside using your thumb and pointer finger is the easiest ! And as your rolling put little dots of hot glue it keeps it from falling apart.
6. Now your at the end glue the end piece in place and trun it over now that little circle tail you had left at the end when cutting now can be glued to the bottom of the flower for a base.
