Lavender is part of our May color palette, and you will see it sprinkled throughout our projects in this month’s craft collection. Not only is it a pretty color, but the flower is beautiful too. Since we already have our crepe paper lavender plant, our designer Krista decided to make some felt lavender flowers.
This felt flower is great for beginners, and you can make an entire bundle in a short amount of time if you’re using a cutting machine with a rotary blade. If cutting by hand, we recommend you trace onto fabric using a disappearing fabric marker and small detail scissors.
A Flower to Lavender
Lavender is known for its calming properties, and while our felt lavender may not have a fragrance, we think that crafting these felt flowers will be just as therapeutic! If you love the smell of lavender, we have some homemade lavender bath salts you can make after crafting these flowers. We also like to add lavender essential oil to some of our DIY skincare, including our hand sanitizer spray and hand lotion.
When you are ready to make your felt lavender flowers, we recommend using a Cricut Maker or Silhouette Cameo 4 with our SVG file to cut your felt pieces. After selecting the felt setting on your Cricut Maker, be sure to change the blade to rotary for a better cut.
