Okie Dokie Artichokie

Over the years, I’ve developed quite a love for artichokes and have designed a couple of crepe paper versions for previous collections. Whether using paper or felt, what I especially like about crafting these pretty edible flowers — is how easy they are to make! These felt artichokes are very beginner-friendly and a great craft if you’re new to embroidery or just want a bit more practice.

The artichoke itself is comprised of a stuffed ball center with leaves overlapped and glued to the exterior. Easy peasy! If you have a little crafter at home, this would make a great project for them as well. We used our lichen green felt, which is heathered for a more textured quality, and our dark moss green embroidery floss to tie it all together.

Share with us when you’re all finished by uploading your pics to our crafters’ community or on Instagram with the hashtag #MadeWithLia. 

Stitches used: Blanket, whip, and ladder stitch.
