TUTORIALS - Felting Flowers


Here will be tutorials for two different styles of flower. I have written them so that they can easily be
followed (hopefully) by someone with little or no felting experience. Experienced felters will get the
idea just from the pictures and a quick scim over the instructions :)

The first tutorial is for flowers with a stem

You will need:

Merino wool tops/roving - green for the stem + 2 flower colours

Silk fibre - I used sari silk fibre

Bubble wrap

Elastic bands, or pieces of tights/pantyhose legs to use as ties

Beads - optional

Brooch backs - optional

A towel

Soap and/or washing up liquid

Warm water

Scissors

Thin plastic, cut from a carrier bag or similar - size 10 x 10 (25cm x 25cm)

For sprinkling water onto the wool fibre I have a special tool with a water sprinkler, simply because I
do a LOT of felting. You can use a plastic pop bottle, or small milk carton with a couple of holes poked
in the lid, to sprinkle water. Or you can scatter it with a spoon, or drip it off your fingers.

1.

Place the towel on to your work surface. Fold your bubble wrap in half with the bubbles on the

inside and place it on top of the towel, now open the bubble wrap (you will need to fold it back over
the flower in a moment so please dont move it).

2.

Decide

what

length

you

want

the

stem

to

be.

Remember

it

will

shrink!

Break off a suitable length of green fibre. You don't want it too thin or too thick.. I find that when
using merino tops if I separate them along the length into two equal pieces they are just right.

3.

Fill a jug or mug with very warm water and add washing up liquid to it. No more than a

teaspoon per pint of water. Alternatively put your bar of soap in the warm water and leave till it goes
cloudy.

4.

Carefully place the green fibre into the soapy water - keeping about 3 at one end completely

dry!

5.

As you take the fibre back out of the water you must be careful it doesnt separate due to the

weight of the

water. Hold the fluffy end in one hand, position the other hand about an inch from the

surface of the water and gently draw the fibre between the fingers of that hand to remove some of the
water.

We

want

it

wet,

but

not

soaked.

6.

Once the fibre is out of the water dry your hands. Lay the stem over the palm of one hand so the

fluffy end is just hanging over, place the other hand on top and gently roll the stem between the palms
of your hands 20 times increasing pressure as you go. Now move along to the next bit of stem and
repeat the process, do this all the way along be sure to keep the fluffy end dry.

7.

Continue rolling between your palms like this until the stem is firm - if you have a small rush mat /

sushi mat, rolling the stem in them works very well.

8.

Take the piece of thin plastic and cut a hole in the centre just big enough for the stem to go

through. Pass the stem through the plastic until the plastic is right behind the fluffy end, now lay it
down on the bubble wrap so the stem is underneath the plastic and the fluffy end is on top. Now
spread that fluffy end out so it radiates out from the stem in a circle. This will root into the base of the
flower when you place the petals make sure to centre them where the stems is.

9.

Decide which of the colours will be the base colour of your flower (this will be col.1). Hold the

fibre approx. 6 (15cm) from the end with one hand. With your other hand gently grasp the tips of the
fibre and pull. Keep pulling steadily until the fibres you are holding have detached from the rest.

10. Pinch the tips at one end of the tuft together and place the pinched end right over the stem (at
the centre of the green fluff circle).

11. Pull another tuft of fibre, pinch the end and position next to the first, touching but not
overlapping. Repeat this process until you have a continuous circle of petals.

12. Take your second petal colour (this will be col.2) and pinching between thumb and forefinger pull

a small tuft of fibre. Again pinch the tips at one end and place them in the centre of the circle, this tuft
should lie over the join of the previous petals repeat all the way around.

13. From col. 1 pull a small tuft, gently tease it apart sideways, so it spreads out and is more wispy
than the others do not pinch the end. Place tuft on the outside edge of the circle, on top of the
previous tufts. These tufts will not reach the centre of the flower, which is ok, we only want these on
the

outside

edge

of

the

petals.

Continue

placing

all

the

way

round

the

circle.

14. Take col. 2, pull a small tuft and tease it gently apart so it is wispy, lightly pinch one end and
place the pinched end in the centre of the flower. Repeat all the way around (should only take 2,
maybe 3 tufts).

15. Pull out some sari silk fibre and chop it into short lengths with your scissors. Sprinkle the silk over
the top of the flower, I like to place a dark colour, often green, in the centre.

16. Sprinkle warm soapy water onto the flower, starting in the centre and working your way
outwards. You want it to be thoroughly wet, but not swimming.

17. Fold the bubble wrap back over the top of the flower and gently press down to ensure the flower is
evenly

soaked.

18. Sprinkle some water onto the bubble wrap and get your palms soapy. Gently smooth the bubble
wrap over the flower making sure there are no air pockets. Now start rubbing your hands in small
gentle circles, you need to thoroughly rub every part of the flower this should take about 2
minutes.

19. Pull the bubble wrap back and carefully straighten the flower up if necessary. If you have wayward
fibres sticking out from the edges carefully fold them back over the flower petals.

20. Put the bubble wrap back over the top and turn it over (so you are looking at the other side of the
flower through the bubble wrap.

21. Repeat

step

19

and

20.

22. Still keeping the flower sandwiched in between the bubble wrap, with the stem coming out at one
side. Starting at the edge closest to you roll the bubble wrap up, roll it all the way up and secure with
elastic bands.

23. Positioning your hands over the place where the flower is gently roll back and forth (like rolling
pastry) 50 times.

It may help to wrap the bubble roll inside the towel to roll it.

Pressure and movement create friction and heat which cause the wool fibres to felt, and shrink in the
direction that you are rolling.

24. Unroll, straighten the flower if necessary (without repositioning it). Cover it back up.

25. Rotate the bubble wrap sandwich 90 to the left, reposition the stem so that it still comes out at
the side. Again working from the edge closest to you roll it up and secure. Roll a little more firmly this
time another 50 rolls.

26. Repeat steps 25 & 26 until you have worked all four edges.

27. Turn the flower over and repeat the rolling process until you have worked all four edges again.

28. The flower should be pretty well felted by now. It is time to shape it! Hold the stem gently in one
hand, now pull the stem until the head of the flower is in the palm of your hand. Roll back and forth
between your hands 20 times, and throw it HARD onto the work surface (this shocks the fibres and
speeds up the final felting stage). Straighten flower, gently stretching the petals sideways as you
go. By doing this you will get a nice ruffled, rippling flower.

29. Hold the stem in one hand and again pull until the head of the flower is in the palm of your hand
held in a light fist. Gently using a finger from the other hand - poke the petals down into the
centre. Now roll it between your hands like you are making a clay ball roll it 20 times then throw it
down onto the work surface a couple of times.

Unroll the flower and use your fingers to massage and stretch the petals into the shape you want them
to be.

30. Repeat step 28 applying most pressure at the base of the flower, repeating step 29 one more
time. After each repeat stretch the petals into shape! The flower should feel sturdy and well felted,
and you are hopefully happy with the shape.

31. Rinse thoroughly. Alternating between hot and cold water for the rinses will harden the felt even
more. Squeeze out excess water.

32. Manipulate the petals into a pleasing position and leave to dry.
remember the shape that it dries in and stay that way.

Felt has memory it will

My daughter wearing one as a corsage

You can make these long enough to wear as a necklace, belt or headband. Make them a little smaller
and daintier and use as napkin rings - imagine how lovely they would be used at a Wedding
Breakfast. Or make a short stem and stitch a brooch pin to the back to wear as a brooch. One
Mothers Day I felted a bouquet of these (with very stiff stems) for both of our Moms.. they loved them
:)

Enjoy!

Tutorial No.2
Flowers with Petals

You will need:

Merino wool fibre

Sari silk fibre

Bubble wrap

Soap / washing up liquid

Warm water

Elastic bands / pieces cut from tights/panty hose legs to use as ties

Beads

Brooch back

Towel

Scissors

For sprinkling water onto the wool fibre I have a special tool with a water sprinkler, simply because I do a LOT of
felting. You can use a plastic pop bottle, or small milk carton with a couple of holes poked in the lid, to sprinkle
water.

1.

Or

you

can

scatter

it

with

spoon,

or

drip

it

off

your

fingers.

Place the towel on to your work surface. Fold your bubble wrap in half with the bubbles on the inside and

place it on top of the towel, now open the bubble wrap (you will need to fold it back over the flower in a moment
so please dont move it).

2.

Decide which of the colours will be the base colour of your flower. Hold the fibre approx. 6 (15cm) from

the end with one hand. With your other hand gently grasp the tips of the fibre and pull. Keep pulling steadily until
the fibres you are holding have detached from the rest.

3. Fold about one third of the tuft of fibre back on itself, and gently manipulate the fibres into a teardrop shape.

This is your first petal; place it on the bubble wrap. The point of the

teardrop will be at the centre of the

flower so be sure to position it on the bubble wrap with room for the rest of your petals.

4. Repeat the previous step four more times. Now you have five

5.

petals, just touching in the centre.

Pick up the fibre in the colour you want to use for the centre of your flower. Again hold it 6 from the end,

this time pinch some fibres between thumb and fore finger.. so you are drawing off a much smaller tuft.

6.

These tufts will hold your petals together. Place a tuft across the centre of the flower so one end of the tuft

is half way up one petal, crosses the centre of the flower and on to the opposite petal, where it will go about half
way up. Do this for each petal.

7.

Take your third colour and pull a small tuft (as in last step) use this wherever you wish to add a highlight to

the petals. Use scissors to cut short pieces of fibre from the tuft if needed.

8.

Pull out some sari silk fibre in which ever colour you fancy (I often use two or three colours, one for the petals

and the others mostly in the centre). Use the scissors to chop short lengths and sprinkle on top of the flower.

9.

Fill a jug or mug with very warm water and add washing up liquid to it. No more than a teaspoon per pint of

water. Alternatively put your bar of soap in the warm water and leave till it goes cloudy.

10. Sprinkle warm soapy water onto your flower.

11.

Fold the bubble wrap back over the top of the flower and gently press down to ensure the flower is evenly

soaked and there are no air pockets in between the fibre.

12.

Sprinkle some water onto the bubble wrap and get your palms soapy. Gently smooth the bubble wrap over

the flower making sure there are no air pockets. Now start rubbing your hands in small gentle circles, you need to
thoroughly rub every part of the flower this should take about 2 minutes.

13.

Pull the bubble wrap back and carefully straighten the flower up. If the petals seem to be joining up use

the scissors to cut between them dont go into the centre of the flower.

14.

Put the bubble wrap back over the top and turn it over (so you are looking at the other side of the flower

through the bubble wrap.

15.

16.

Repeat step 12 and 13.

Still keeping the flower sandwiched in between the bubble wrap. Starting at the edge closest to you roll

the bubble wrap up, roll it all the way up and secure with elastic bands / ties.

17.

Positioning your hands over the place where the flower is gently roll back and forth (like rolling pastry) 50

times. It may help to wrap the bubble roll inside the towel to roll it.

18.

Pressure and movement create friction and heat which cause the wool fibres to felt, and shrink in the

direction that you are rolling.

19.

Unroll, straighten the flower if necessary (without moving it). Cover it back up.

20.

Rotate the bubble wrap sandwich 90 to the left. Again working from the edge closest to you roll it up and

secure. Roll a little more firmly this time another 50 rolls.

21.

Repeat steps 18 to 20 until you have worked all four edges.

22.

Turn the flower over and repeat the rolling process until you have worked all four edges again.

23.

The flower should be pretty well felted by now. It is time to shape it! Make a circle from the thumb and fore

finger of one hand and place the flower over the top. Gently using a finger from the other hand - poke the flower
centre down into the palm of your hand, then push the petals into the centre. Now roll it between your hands like
you are making a clay ball roll it 20 times then throw it, hard, down onto the work surface a couple of times (this
shocks the fibres and speeds up the final stage). Unroll the flower and use your fingers to massage and stretch the
petals into the shape you want them to be.

24.

Position the flower over thumb and fore finger as in 23, poke the centre into the palm of your hand

leaving the petals sticking out. Roll back and forth between your hands 20 times, paying particular attention to the
centre of the flower. Again throw it onto the work surface a few times. Straighten flower, pull and massage the
petals into shape.

Repeat 23 and 24 until the flower feels sturdy and well felted, and you are happy with the shape.

25.

Rinse thoroughly. Alternating between hot and cold water for the rinses will harden the felt even

more. Squeeze out excess water.

26.

Manipulate the petals into a pleasing position and leave to dry. Felt has memory it will remember the

shape that it dries in and stay that way.

1 layer of petals.. crumpled slightly to dry


You can make one, two or three layers of petals. For multi layered flowers I like to crinkle the petals up more
as in the above picture, this makes the flower more interesting and fuller rather than being flat.

Finishing off:

1. Thread a fine needle (a fine beading needle is best for tiny seed beads) with complementary colour cotton, and
tip the beads out into a saucer so you can see them easily.

2. I like to decide how my beads will look before I start sewing them on by popping pinches of beads into the
centre of the flower, deciding roughly how many and where I want them to be. Then tip the beads back in the
saucer and start sewing them on one at a time.

3. Finish off by sewing the brooch back on.

TIP: The nice thing with multi layered petals is that you can easily hide the ugly part of the brooch pin! Make 2
small cuts through the bottom petal centre,positioned where the ends of the pin are and just big enough to push
them through. Position the bar on the inside where it will be sandwiched between the petal layers, with just the
operational

parts

of

the

pin

sticking

out

the

other

side.

NOTE: I sew the brooch back on, then assemble the petal layers and finally sew the beads on. I join all the
layers while I am sewing the beads on.. you can do it separately if you prefer.

You can make many different flowers from the same basic method. By using more or less layers and by changing
petal shape.

Once you have mastered the basic flower you may wish to try some variations..

A.

Half way through the felting process carefully cut each petal in to two, only go half way down the

petal. Finish off felting in the normal way and you will have pretty bifurcated petals.

B.

Instead of laying out five individual petals, lay them out so the edges are touching and allow them to felt

together into a circle. Half way through the felting process cut into the petal leaving a 2cm circle at the centre
which you do not cut into. Make cuts approx. 1cm apart all the way round the outside of the circle. Carry on
felting as per usual and you will end up with a daisy like flower. A multi layered flower made up of these daisy
type petals can be very interesting, especially when beaded.
