Charlotte Walk Through DIY: Felt Flowers

Happy Wednesday! It’s Julia here! Walk Through a Wedding: Charlotte is in full swing, but I wanted to jump on quickly this morning to give you guys a little sneak peek of what’s going on today!!

This time around, we really wanted our DIYs to match our design board so all of the projects I took on, were based on something I had put on the design board. First up? Pillows with hand sewn felt flowers!

Since I don’t have a sewing machine I started with some pre-made pillows. I also needed scissors, a needle and thread, felt, and a pen!

I wanted some variety so I bought three different colors of felt to make the flowers.

This is where it gets really hi-tech! You ready? I used a hotel lotion bottle to trace small circles onto the pieces of felt! The size was perfect!!

I carefully cut out the felt circles using some super sharp sewing scissors. I cut out six circles for each flower!

Then I folded each circle in half and sewed them together

Next, I sewed the flowers onto the pillow!

Here we go again! But with blue this time!

Since I didn’t have a pattern I was super excited when the flowers turned out looking like this!!

Our American Honey colors!!

We’ll show you the completed pillow when we post the Walk Through run down!! I can’t wait for you to see it!!
