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 sweet pea 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 fifth felt flower design – the adorable sweet pea.
For the sweet peas I used Sky and Periwinkle for the petals and Fern for the flower base. Find this exact felt and many more colors at Benzie Design.
- To Make 3 Flowers You’ll Need: 4″ x 8″ rectangle for the petals and a 5″ 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 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.
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…
This pattern makes 3 flowers total. Separate the petals by the pattern to get started. Add some hot glue to the small oval and wrap around a floral wire, hold until cool.
Then wrap the second petal around the first, the opposite way and glue. Add the flower base and the first one is done.
The other two flowers are the exact same. Start with the smallest petal, glue to wrap around the wire, then add another petal in the opposite direction, and then the last petal, again in the opposite direction. Finish with the flower base!
Combine all three flowers into a little bunch by using floral tape. Remember, floral tape won’t stick to itself until it’s pulled!
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!
