Inspired by the Something Turquoise’s Felt Anemone flower tutorial, I decided to make my own version.
Hot glue and hot glue gun
*Felt details: I used Shrimp wool felt for the petals (I was notified by the seller who updated her inventory to let me know that it has been replaced by a very similar color listed as “coral”) and Lemon Lime Twist for the leaves. Using a wool felt or a wool blend felt yields noticeably prettier results, so I highly recommend splurging a little on the nicer felt. There is more variety and there are richer color choices as well.
** Yarn details: I used Nature’s Choice Organic Cotton Yarn in mustard for the center but any worsted weight yarn should do.
– Lay a 4-5 inch tail between two fingers and wrap the yarn around fingers several times. The more you wrap, the denser the pom will be.
– Cut the pom from the skein and weave the newly cut tail through and around the wrapped yarn.
– Slide the bundle of wrapped yarn from off your fingers and square knot the yarn in place. Flip it over and knot it again.
– Cut through the yarn loops only. Be careful not to cut the tails.
– Trim the top of the pom down flat and close to the center, while leaving the sides long and a little unkempt. You should end up with a little sun burst center that mimics the look of the center of an anemone flower.
3. Glue the petals around the pom center in a staggered manner.
Add leaves and/or a clip if desired.
