Do you remember these flower wands? I promised a tutorial showing how to make the roses and here it is! Only way better then I had planned. I connected with a new sponsor & source for the most incredible wool felt ever, Janet of Felt on the Fly. I suggested that I make readers a tutorial using her felt and she sent me a gorgeous “blossom” color way-I had never used merino felt before and am head over heels in love now. I don’t know if I can go back to wool felt now-I want a studio filled with merino…but then you might never see me again!

I love felt and flowers but I wanted to take this tutorial up a notch. Not just for kids, this rose is grown up enough for a wedding, special gift or to decorate a room. Get lost browsing Felt on the Fly’s color palettes-there is enough inspiration for a whole garden of blossoms.

To make this long stem rose start by downloading the illustrated template by clicking here & printing out the PDF.

Then follow these step by step instructions (just click on the picture to see a bigger image):

How about you? Who will you give a rose to this summer? Which colors of felt would you choose? I would love to know if you make some roses of your own-tell in the comments!

    Gorgeous! I’ll take 12, thanks Jess πŸ˜‰ Seriously, though, I need to try this. I’ve never done a felt project and this one looks great (I’m no good at starting small). Plus, the colorways in that shop are amazing. That’s one of the things that’s held me back from buying felt in the past.

      I actually thought of you & your color series on your blog when I was visiting her shop today. The only problem for me is that I want 10 sheets of every color…you send me the felt & I’ll make you the flowers; )

    So many options with this! The felt looks extra luxurious from your photos – great project πŸ™‚

      Thanks Katrina! It really is the softest & lushest felt ever-I’m so spoiled now I don’t know if I can use anything else: )

    Darn it! Zoe, took my words! Absolutely gorgeous! Makes me want to run to the store and grab a bunch of supplies to make this! πŸ™‚

      Maybe I should make my fortune with a flower factory; ) I hope you make some roses Joy-let me know if you do!

    It is so pretty!

    I think I might try to make a bouquet for blue ones for the baby’s room! I can’t have real flowers in the house because my cats eat them but felt flowers, I’m sure they would not even sniff them!

    • http://ohmyhandmade.com/members/ohmyhandmade/ Jessika Hepburn

      Blue ones would be lovely Marie! They would be a nice keepsake as the baby gets older too: )

    The step-by-step pictures of the tutorial are lovely as is the finished product.

    So pretty! I would love to have a bouquet. Unfortunately I think my cat would eat these! I have some felt balls that he likes to chase around the house.

      You can put a couple drops of essential oils on the roses & that would probably keep a cat from chomping on them: )

    The flower tutorial is exquisitely photographed too! And I want to compliment Jessika on that stunning little shell pincushion. Can you see that on a dressing table too with jewelry like brooches or old hat pins in it?

    • http://ohmyhandmade.com/members/ohmyhandmade/ Jessika Hepburn

      Ooh I am so glad you noticed it Joanne! I made it from one of my loved abalone shells from the west coast, it makes me so happy to see it in my studio-a little bit of home to remind me of the Pacific:)
