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.
