How to Make a Felt Rose Flower

For this week's craft technique I wanted to show you how to make a felt flower like the one I used in Maisy's Neon, Mint & Silver Collection. They are super easy to make and can be turned into brooches, hair bands or simply used to add a floral touch to your home decor. They are a smaller altered variation of the Rose brooch from my book 'Torie Jayne's Stylish Home Sewing'.

'Surprisingly easy to do, this pretty felt rose makes a stylish brooch. Very versatile, roses like this can also be used to adorn pillows or a handmade tote, strung together to make a garland, or turned into napkin holders.'
