We have been enjoying Emily’s embroidery projects featuring some of our favorite seasonal flowers. Last month she made this embroidered felt snowdrops bookmark. And now that spring is near, she has moved on from winter blooms to create this embroidered felt tulip patch. We ironed this patch onto a tote but you can put it on anything you want!

To get started, download our pattern below and follow the step-by-step instructions.

Tote-ally tulip season

While there are many flowers that pop up during springtime, tulips are probably one of the first flowers you think of when you hear the word spring. Though we have crafted a variety of felt and paper tulips over the years, this is our first embroidered felt tulip patch — so we hope you have fun with it! We would also love to see how you use this patch, so be sure to share photos on our Facebook page for members or by using the hashtag #MadeWithLia on Instagram. 

Skill level: Beginner/Intermediate
