Fabulous Felt Flower Brooch
I am a self confessed anglophile. I often say I was born on the wrong continent and constantly find myself drawn to all things British. So I was pleased to hear that Mother’s Day in the UK is almost upon us – next Sunday in fact. Our US equivalent is not until May so we thought we’d share a few gorgeous DIY Mother’s Day projects earlier than usual – especially for all of our friends across the pond.
It helps that our brand new writer and public relations gal is from England and has brought a touch of the Great British Isles to the Lia Griffith studio. We’re often “tickled pink” by her colloquial phrases and she has taken great pride in showing us how to brew a proper cup of hot British tea – yum!
All Things English
Our second DIY Mother’s Day craft project is inspired by our English teammate Emily (who is our lovely model in these photos) and all that we love about the green and pleasant land she calls home. It’s inspired by the great English countryside and afternoon tea, by cricket on the lawn and Mum’s fresh scones. It’s been a while since we designed something in felt and we know how much these no sew projects are loved, so we put together this sweet little flower brooch that you can make at home in time for the big day. Included in the pattern for this project is a printable note card that compliments the colors in the brooch perfectly and throws in a pop of yellow to hint at the Spring months ahead. You can download and print these little cards using the button at the end of the post.
All you’ll need to make this DIY Mother’s Day felt flower brooch are a few pieces of wool felt, a hot glue gun and a brooch pin for the back. Use the flower template below to cut your petals and leaves. You’ll find instructions below on how to put the brooch together but feel free to stitch the petals in place if, like my darling sister, you believe that felt and glue just don’t mix! We love to see our designs out there in the world so if you make this DIY felt brooch then please share it with us on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram using the #MadeWithLia hashtag and we’ll be sure to share our faves.
