How many incredible crafts can be made from fabric! For example, do-it-yourself felt flowers, patterns, patterns of which obey even a beginner in needlework, won a lot of fans of home-made jewelry. Consider the principle of the basic models.
This many-sided felt ...
DIY handicrafts are one of the most affordable types of handmade items. And in many respects, this is due to the amazing flexibility of the material. Felt - felt from natural wool. Its texture is a thick "notch" of fibers, which intertwine thoroughly among themselves and help the product to keep its shape. Felt fabric comes in different colors and thicknesses, so you can always choose a material that fits your idea. So, let's say, toys are made of thicker felt, and flowers are made of thinner. But there is no strict compliance law in this case.
Where can felt flowers be used?
The most common crafts of felt fabric are flowers. Experienced needlewomen love them for their excellent compatibility with other elements of a wide variety of handicrafts. And those who are just taking the first steps in hand-made, prefer felt flowers because of the guaranteed successful result. These products can be used for decoration:
- clothes (even the strictest and most boring dress will sparkle with new colors with an original decor in the form of a flower brooch. You can also trim mittens, a hem of a coat or a hat with felt flowers);
- accessories (for example, a headband or hair clip with a flower looks very fresh and nontrivial);
- gifts (gift wrapping will be even brighter if you stick a felt on it);
- home textiles (decorate bedspreads, pillows with flowers);
- interior (from felt crafts you can make a beautiful panel or collage on the wall).
Do-it-yourself felt flower patterns
The patterns of most representatives of the flora are similar: they are built on the basis of chamomile - a few petals with a core. But the way in which these elements are grouped, and provide a specific difference of colors.
- a piece of felt (usually ready-made pieces of fabric are sold in stores for creativity);
- pencil (the softer the stylus, the better);
- silicone glue;
- thread, needle;
- floss threads suitable for shade to fabric;
- beads or rhinestones for the heart of the flower.

Master classes with step by step photos
There are some more technologies for making colors from felt. For example, the creation of crafts from one piece.
Rose of felt
- On the fabric draw a circle (diameter about 10 cm).
- We begin to cut the petals, moving in a circle from the edge to the middle, to make a long chain.

- Make the same cuts on the fold line.
- Fill the fabric so that we have a flower. The stronger the thread, the denser the chrysanthemum will be.
- On the fabric we draw 12 identical circles and 1 circle with a diameter slightly larger.
