Tutorial for Felt Butterfly & Flowers Wall Hanging - Printable Templates
We made Butterfly & Flower Wall Hangings this week at Mencap...
If you would like to make them with your family or with your group - they really do appeal to girls of all ages...! Here is the Tutorial with Printable Templates.
What you will need...
Felt - A4 sheet for the background
Self-adhesive felt to decorate the butterfly - or use glue...
Felt scraps for Butterfly, Flowers and Hearts
Thin dowel (we used green garden canes cut to size)
Ribbon or cord to hang
How to make...
Turn over a narrow hem, just wide enough to slip your dowel into, and stitch - either by hand or on your machine, as I did.
Cut out your butterfly and flowers / hearts (mine are die cut, but you can use this flower and heart template)
Stitch your butterfly onto your background with a running stitch.
Cut the butterfly body out and stitch or stick it on top.
Decorate the butterfly with pieces of contrasting felt - use self-adhesive felt or use glue to attach.
Attach your flowers / hearts - we used buttons to secure them to the background.
Slip the dowel into the hemmed top and tie on your ribbon or cord.
