Download Pattern


Note: Felting needles are extremely sharp; use caution. Follow manufacturer's instructions.

  1. Wax serrated knife with candle stub or paraffin and cut foam ball in half; each ball will make two pins.
  2. Place small amount of wool fiber against foam half-ball and attach to surface using felting needle; follow manufacturer instructions to ensure safety. Continue felting fiber to foam until completely covered.
  3. Cut and fuse two different 6" fabric squares, wrong sides together. Using air-soluble marker, trace large flower onto fabric, disregarding dashed circle inside flower. Cut out flower.
  4. Repeat Step 3 to create additional large and small flowers from different fused fabrics. Refer to photo to layer flowers together; adhere centers with fabric glue.
  5. If desired, use scallop scissors to cut small circle from white felt; see dashed circle on large flower pattern for approximate size. Adhere to flower center.
  6. Adhere needlefelted foam half-ball to flower center.
  7. Cut two 6" ribbon lengths, fold in half and adhere to back of flower with fabric glue. Adhere pin back to back of flower; let dry.

Yo-Yo Variation

  1. For yo-yo flower pin, shown with yellow center, follow Steps 2-4 above to create two large flowers, cutting center from each as indicated on pattern.
  2. To make yo-yo, draw 4 3/4" circle onto non-fused fabric and cut out. Sew gathering stitch around circle 1/8" from edge and pull up gathers tightly to create ruffled circle; knot and clip threads. Gather completed yo-yo again 1/4" from edge.
  3.  Place yo-yo through center of layered fabric flowers; secure with fabric glue. Adhere felted half-ball to center of yo-yo.

I can imagine these needle felted pins as hair clips. This would be a perfect hair accessory for children. It can be given as gifts, too.
