This post is going to be short, sweet and to the point. If you’ve ever made felt flowers (or you’ve ever wanted to!) then you may have sat there thinking “what size flower is this flower design going to make?”
After all when you’re making rolled felt flowers from an SVG you can size your design quite easily… 1 inches, 2 inches…. 30 inches! But after the rolling and the hot gluing what size is the actual flower going to be?
Well here’s the guide. My quick and handy quick sheet to getting the perfect sized felt flowers every time.
Start by cutting your felt flowers out on your Cricut Maker… I use a fabric grip mat (or a strong grip mat!) and the rotary wheel for flawless cuts. If you’ve never made felt flowers before you can follow my easy tutorial here.
Go ahead and set the size of your cut flowers in Cricut Design Space and then select how many flowers you want to cut. If you’re cutting a bunch in the same size you can simply change the number of copies and you’re good to go.
Since we’re just going over the sizes here I went ahead and cut 8 flowers at different sizes: 2″, 3″, 4″, 5″, 6″, 7″, 8″ and 9″.
FYI Felt is pretty thick (compared to paper) so if you cut the same sized flowers in paper you’re finished flowers will be different sizes… smaller sizes.
Looking for a few examples? Check out this paper flower bouquet tutorial… or this pretty corrugated cardboard flower wreath!
Here we go! The final look!!
Can you believe that the largest 9″ cut flower is only 2″ (the smallest size!) when it’s all done? They roll up so tiny!
