handmade felt foxglove flowers

Foxy Flowers

Foxgloves are more common in European gardens and come in a variety of colors. They attract hummingbirds, bees, butterflies, and supposedly even fairies. So we figured some felt foxgloves would fit in perfectly with this month’s magical fairy garden theme

We made purple and pink felt foxgloves, but you can craft yours in another shade or a completely different color. Some white or cream-colored foxgloves would be really pretty! You can also play around with the color of the spots you add to your petals. When you’re done, feel free to share your version with us on Instagram by using the hashtag #MadeWithLia or by posting photos over on our crafters community page.

Skill level: Beginner-intermediate

Crafting tip: You can add your felt foxgloves to a vase or pot them to create a plant.

How to Make Felt Foxgloves

  1. Gather tools and materials. We made one foxglove stem out of Plum felt and the other out of Sweet Pea.
  2. Cut out felt according to pattern using a cutting machine with rotary blade (recommended) or scissors. The amounts listed in the PDF are to make one foxglove stem.
  3. Gently stretch to cup the middle of all the 3 larger sized flower pieces slightly.
  4. Add clusters of dots to the middle-top of the flowers using a white paint pen. Do not oversaturate or the paint can soak through the felt Let dry completely before the next step to prevent the ink from bleeding.
