no tutu frilly, you did a great job. i love it! i tried it too but mine is a little wilder looking. i like it but i want to make it to look round like yours. yours looks like acrylic felt? how big is it and how long of a piece did you use to get it that size? is there a trick in getting the rounded look? i ran a thread thru the bottom of my strip and gathered then started rolling. i would like to skip the running thread. i also used a wool felt and its pretty stiff. it does make a pretty pin but i am looking to make them just like you!! spill please.

I tried it too. My first one I did not glue the bottom edge shut before I rolled,and the 2 layers shifted on me and gave my petals a "twisted" look. The second one I did glue. I ran a small strip of hot glue down the long edge and glued together, then I cut my slits and rolled. It turned out much more uniform!

Thanks for the feedback ladies! All I did was start w/a 6" strip of felt (acrylic) that was 1 1/2" wide (you'll probably need 4 of these). I folded it in half, pinned it to stay shut (on the open side of the fold of course), and then I cut slits on the folded side of the felt. I then sewed a running stitch along the open end (removing pins as you go of course)....I would sew a little then pull the thread to make the felt "curl" into a circle. Once it's the size of a circle you like, just cut the rest of the felt off and sew the "circle" shut. I repeated this step for all layers, gradually making them smaller. Once all were done I just put a thin layer of glue around the "hole" in the middle of the circle and stacked/glued them together. I had to tweak the very top a little by taking the small circle piece (with 3-4 slits) and I tucked it into the hole of the 2nd smallest layer (and added a few stitches to hold them together) just to round off the top. Hope this makes sense! LOL......oh yeah....I didn't do any "rolling" of the felt either?

I should also add that I cut a small circle of matching felt for a "base" to start assembling the flower on.

Wow both of you did AWESOME!! Love it! Did both of you use acrylic felt? I am new to felt flowers. What is the best type of felt to use? Thanks! GREAT job!

I used a scrap of wool felt but will try with regular felt and see the difference. Will post a pic of the difference (if any) later today.
