It’s Felt Flower Week again! This is our fourth time sharing felt flower patterns all week long that culminate in a stunning DIY felt flower wedding bouquet and boutonnieres. But this week is extra special because instead of cutting all these flowers by hand, we’re letting our Cricut Maker do all the hard work for us! In our shop, we’ve now released all our past felt flower patterns as Cricut .SVG cut files, including today’s brand new design! Stop by the shop to purchase your giant Iceland poppy pattern for only $1.99, or buy all 22 felt flower patterns for only $34!


In talking about handmade flowers – I’m singing the praises of felt. Unlike paper, felt flowers are thick, sturdy and can withstand all that your wedding day could possibly throw at them. Paper can rip and crumple in a flash – but not felt! There is something so old-school crafty about felt… and I just love it. So without further ado, here’s this weeks fourth felt flower design – the gorgeous, giant Iceland poppy.

Supplies to make your own felt flowers

FELT:

For the giant poppies I used Blush, Oats, and Peach for the petals, Linen for the center details, and Fern for the pom pom center and the flower base. Find this exact felt and many more colors at Benzie Design.

  • For Each Flower You’ll Need: 11″ x 10″ rectangle of felt for the petals, 2″ x 9″ for the center details, a 2″ x 2″ square for the flower base, and a Medium 1″ felt pom pom ball for the very center.

Upload

Upload our custom .SVG cut file into Design Space and add it to your canvas. Then customize as you’d like and prepare to cut.

  • Choose: Felt, Wool Fabric as your cut setting and use the rotary blade.

You can drag to resize this file larger or smaller with no problem. If you try to make it too small the smaller details won’t cut properly.

Assembly

Start by cutting an “x” in the felt pom pom. Then add hot glue inside and insert a sturdy floral wire. Hold until cool.

Next, take the rectangle flower center and wrap around the pom pom base adding hot glue as you go. Stretching the cuts to fan out.

There are 8 petals total, we’re going to start with the 3 smaller ones. Add them to the center with hot glue and get a good pinch on them while doing it, that will add volume to the petals.

Now add the remaining 5 larger petals in the same way. Stagger them to create a full flower, and make sure to get a good pinch on the backside. Hold until each one is cool.

Have A Few Questions?

  • Can I cut the felt flowers with my Cricut Explore? Yes, but it will take a little bit more effort. Visit this page to learn about what materials your Cricut Explore can cut.
  • How do I clean my fabric mat? To clean light scraps and fuzz, a lint roller works great. Try not to touch your mat as the oils in our skin can damage it. Use your tweezers to remove large strings and pieces.
  • What if I don’t have a Cricut? You can print out our free .PDF pattern at the end of the post and cut the flowers out by hand, like we used to have to do before the Maker!
