This easy hand sewing craft is made using Cricut Maker felt cut-outs, a 4″ embroidery hoop, and your own personal stitch-work embellishments.  The floral pattern also makes a nice Mother’s Day gift!

For this pattern I explored a mid-century modern mauve color scheme with teal that is toned down by earthy green flosses.  For a pop of metallic I could have used brass to match the time period, but I opted for the more current rose gold. 

Have fun using whichever combination of colors you like!  I love to see how other people use my patterns, so please show your color scheme in the comments!

The pattern for this project is available for download on my Etsy shop.  Please note that you can certainly cut out and create your own shapes, but if you have a Cricut® Maker, rotary blade & fabric grip mat this craft is much easier.

I recommend that you read and look through these instructions before proceeding with assembly.  Cricut Design Space instructions follow the craft tutorial.


 Cut felt pattern pieces
 4″ embroidery hoop 
★ Size 7 embroidery needle
 Paint and paintbrush (for embroidery hoop – optional)


Bead caps (or sequins)
Size 10 beading needle

Sewing pins (not shown)
Tacky Glue (not shown)

First things first, I painted the outer embroidery hoop.  I chose metallic rose gold.  
Once the hoop was fully dried, I moved on to the next step.  I placed the inner hoop onto the circle, eyeballing the placement to make sure there was an equal amount of felt on all sides.
Then I flipped the felt and hoop over and carefully placed the outer hoop on top, taking care not to beat up the felt.  
After securing the hoop, I moved on to the felt decorations.  First I laid out the circular border…
Here you can see all my pieces laid out and ready to go.  I pinned the bunny, egg bases and butterflies to the hoop to plan my layout.  Notice the embroidery floss sticking out of the bases of each foot as I mentioned before.
Then I pinned the large leaf cut outs where I wanted them.  
I sewed the cut outs to the hoop while using a few different decorative stitch concepts.  You can attach the cut outs using whichever stitch style you like.  
Lifting the unsewn sections away from the hoop, I added the remaining embroidery details.  
When I was done sewing the remaining details it was time to add the flowers.
There is a big flower and a small flower.  Each has four pieces which are stacked in layers of petals, shown in the picture above.
Secure the stacks of flower petals to the hoop using your beads and bead caps (or sequins).   

At this point I added a few extra beads and bead caps to the hoop.

I also slid additional leaf cut outs underneath the flowers because I like the way the extra layers look.  I could have sewn them on but I “cheated” and glued them on.  
When I was satisfied with my hoop I trimmed the excess felt from the back of the hoop for a clean look.  
Voila!  Finished hoop.
Alternatively, this pattern could be used as a Mother’s Day gift.  Mother’s like flowers, right?  Just stitch her name and there you go (poor photoshop rendition pictured above).
