Pinked Felt Square Flowers

Can you ever really have too many fabric flowers? Perfect for pins, hair decoration or to top a gift, they are as handy as can be. These little pinked felt flowers are so easy that you can get your kids in on the action, but they are pretty enough to find uses all over the house!

Things you’ll need:
Felt squares
Round plate
Pinking shears
Embroidery thread
Embroidery needle

Things to do:
1. Trace your plate onto the felt to create a guide for cutting.
2. Using your pinking shears cut the circle out.
3. Cut the circle into a spiral with a width of 2 inches.
4. Using your thread and needle and starting at the center, sew a running stitch 1/4 inch up from the inside edge of the spiral.
5. Pulling gently, allow the fabric to gather, wrapping it around into a flower as you gather.
6. Once you have formed your flower, use the tail of your thread to secure the layers together with a few stitches through all the layers.
**You can embellish these flowers by adding a running stitch (ungathered) to the top edge of the spiral before stitching the gather stitch.**
