Felt Appliqué Bouquet

Felt flower design from the 1930s


You will need: the pattern (the pdf includes a full size pattern to have printed at a specialty printer, or a small pattern you can enlarge yourself), backing fabric, wool felt in various colours, heatnbond iron on adhesive, 1″ wide ribbon and coloured embroidery threads.

1: Iron the design onto your fabric. I trace the image on the back of the printout using an iron-on pencil and iron it onto my fabric.

2: Embroider the stems. Cut 1″ ribbon to size and apply to picture using the heatnbond.

3: Cut the appropriate number of squares and leaf shapes from green felt and apply to the picture with heatnbond. Embroider the leaves.

4: Cut the flower shapes from your choice of colours (my graphic is just an example), apply with heatnbond, and embroider in your choice of colours.
