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 mini daisy 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 sixth felt flower design – the darling mini daisy.
If you don’t have a Cricut we are sharing a free printable .PDF pattern at the end of the post that you can cut out by hand.
For the mini daisies I used Linen for the petals, extra small pom poms in Butter, and Sage for the flower base. Find this exact felt and many more colors at Benzie Design.
- To Make 6 Flowers You’ll Need: 3 extra small felt pom poms, 11″ x 3″ felt rectangle for the petals and 7″ x 2″ rectangle for the flower bases.
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 make this file larger, but if you try to make it smaller the petals won’t cut properly.
Let Your Maker Work Its Magic
Add the felt to the Cricut Fabric Mat, click to load the mat and press Go! Continue following the cutting mat prompts from Design Space then carefully remove the excess felt and all petals…
Start by cutting a pom pom in half…
Then hot glue a floral wire to the middle of the flat, cut side of the pom pom.
There are 16 petals total. 4 large, 4 medium, and 8 small. Evenly add the 8 small petals first, then the 4 medium, and lastly the 4 large… adding hot glue as you go.
The last step is to add the flower base!
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!
