Loopy Felt Flower Ornament

Happy Friday!
It's finally the weekend and I have big plans of getting all my Christmas shopping done tomorrow! Keep your fingers crossed for me!

Today's project is a FUN one and I got the inspiration from Split Coast Stampers.  I subcribe to their channel on YouTube and I found it on there.  It's called a Loopy Felt Flower.
Pin It To make the felt flower, you need felt of your choice, a sewing machine, scissors and hot glue.  I had all these things in my stash, so I immediately had to make one!  Cut your felt into strips that measure: 2" x 8", 1 1/2" x 4" and 1" x 3" and then a circle of about 1 1/2".
Fold each strip of felt in half the longest ways and machine stitch close to the edge on all 3 strips.  Then using your sharp scissors, snip little sections from one end to the next, being careful not to snip your stitching thread.
Lay down your felt circle with a bit of hot glue on the outside edge and place one end of the longest strip down and start working in a circular manner until you get to the end.  Layer up the next two strip using longest first then the short one.
Finally you have a beautiful loopy felt flower to doll up!  I added a snowman charm (of course) and some yummy gingham ribbon to mine.  Then I put the whole thing on a scalloped circle and added baker's twine for hanging.
I added this little beauty to my Etsy shop, but it flew out of there really fast! Sorry!  I'm hoping to get some more done before promises though!

Thanks for stopping by today. Please come again really soon, but until then...have a lovely day!  HUGS! :)
