What you need:
- Glue Gun & Sticks
- Pencil, Scissors & Ruler
- Sewing Machine & Thread
- White Medium Weight Felt
- Light Pink Satin Bias Tape
- Satin Blanket Binding (Light Pink, Light Green, Sage)
What you do:
Step 1: Cut out Letter Templates from White Medium Weight Felt. Cut 15” x 0.75” (38cm x 2cm) & 24.5” x 0.75” (62cm x 2cm) strips of White Medium Weight Felt for Inner & Outer “O” walls. Use Glue Gun to attach pieces to the letters for 3D effect. See patterns provided with project download.
Step 2: Prep Blanket Binding & Bias Tape for flowers and leaves. Fuse wrong side of Ribbons to keep from fraying.
Tip: Using black fusing will dim the pink of the rose, for a dusty rose look.
Step 3: Large Flowers – Using Blanket Binding cut 3.75” x 3.75” (9.5cm x 9.5cm) square. Fold into triangle three times. Sew bottom edges, see sewing template on instruction sheet download, and cut off excess. Glue 7 petals to Flower Base, template provided with download, and turn petals inside out.
Step 4: Small Flowers – Using Satin Bias Tape, cut 2.5” (6cm) strips. Fold ribbon ends into “V” shape.
Sew bottom edge, see sewing template on instruction sheet download, and cut off excess.
Sew 7-9 petals in a chain. Roll petals, gluing as you go, to create a rose.
Step 5: Fold the prepped Green Blanket Binding, from Step 2, right sides together. Trace, pattern provided, pin and sew along the traced lines, leaving an opening at the bottom of the leaf. Cut out leaves and turn inside out.
Optional: Using white thread, sew leaf veins onto the leaves to really make them pop!
Step 6: Take a small flower and glue to the center of the large flower. (Alternatively, you can use buttons, pearls or even rhinestones.) Pair up the long leaves with the large flowers and round leaves with the small flowers. Now that all your flowers and leaves are ready, it’s time to decorate the letters!
