DIY Yellow Felt Flower Scarf

Felt Flower Scarf Tutorial
I am sure that you have seen beautiful felt flower scarfs popping up all over blog land.  I have seen them for a while but couldn’t quite figure out how to make one.  That is until Amy at Watch Me Daddy posted a wonderful step by step tutorial WITH PICTURES!

She made it look so easy that of course I couldn’t wait to make one of my own.  But I did do mine just a little bit different, because that’s what I do!

The thought of cutting all of those circles out by hand-made me spin, so…
I cheated.  Hey, that’s what I am good at!

I used 2 different Sizzix Big Shot dies to cut my flowers.  That way they were more uniform and much easier to cut.  I used the Bigz Island Flower and the Bigz L Fun Flowers.  Both of these dies are Stampin’ Up Exclusives but if you are interested in them please let me know and I can get you set up with a demo (not me, but a good friend of mine).
After my flowers were all cut out I assembled them exactly as Amy instructed and I ended up with this beautiful pile of flowers.

For the base of the scarf I cut a strip of felt about 2 1/2 inches wide and 38 inches long.  I ended up using 17 flowers.  I sewed each flower onto the strip of felt by hand.  Then I rounded and trimmed the ends so the flowers would blend in more and Wallah!

I really love how it turned out and I get compliments on it every time I wear it.  I like that it isn’t big or bulky so I don’t mind wearing it all day.

    I was wondering how much felt (yardage) is needed to make one of these flower scarfs. Could someone please tell me?

        Thank you. One other question, you mentioned you used two sizes of flower patterns. How many of each size did you cut to assemble the flower itself? Two? Three? Its hard to tell from the pictures. I already purchased my felt and am anxious to get started! Thanks again.

          I used the two dies to create the flower layers, but total I made 17 flowers. I would love to see your when you are finished!
