Doodle Craft... Home Storage Solutions 101: Ideas And Organization Tips Felt Flower Scarf Tutorial Thank you for all of the sweet love on my Felt Flower Scarf! Really, my goodness, I didn't expect so many people to be interested in it. I'm happy to share this tutorial for you on how to make one of your own! Materials needed: 1/2 yard of 72" Felt or Felted Wool (this measurement is to be safe... but you'll end up with some extra here for sure.) Let's get started shall we? 1. Start by cutting your long scarf piece. Now, cut a scallop around the edge of your long scarf piece. Next, circle cutting mania. Each flower will have 6 circles. DO NOT spend the time cutting out perfect circles. Now scallop all of the circles. 2. Stack your 5 largest circles. Take your knotted needle and thread and come up through the stack of circles just off-center. Now go back down through the stack about 1/2 inch away, on the other side of center. Pull very tightly, you will see this gathers your flower up. Now make an X. Tie a few strong knots, but do not cut your thread. This is how your flower will look so far. 3.
