How to weave a flower on the heart loom

The Heart loom from Dewberry Ridge loom is such a sweet little loom๐Ÿ™‚ Here’s the Link to order one of them: LINK

I’ve woven some fun things with it:

Here’s the ‘How to’ that shows some of them: LINK

and how to make a butterfly: LINK

And, now, here’s how to weave a flower using the Heart loom:

The flowers can be used to embellish scarves, stoles, shawls, bags, vests, hats or other garments or pillows, throws, curtains….

To make the flower, you’ll need to weave 5 hearts in petal color and 3 in leaf color:

Fold the leaf hearts in half and stitch the edges.

Then, stitch the petal hearts together with one edge layered a little over the other, then stitch a button on for the center:

Then, stitch the leaves to the back of the flower.

If you are going to stitch a pin or a hair clip to the back of the flower, cut a circle of felt and stitch it over the messy ends on the back.

If you are going to stitch the flower to a garment or home accessory, don’t worry about the felt circle.

Just stitch the flower on, leaving the tips of the leaves and part of the flower petals free so they are dimensional.

Here’s a video showing how it’s done:

    That is so pretty! I love the way you’ve made the leaves. You could make some lovely Christmas roses for decoration ( sorry about the CH word!) I’m still enjoying making the whimsical cats but I-spy a new project now. Bless you xx

      You could make one of the roses and stitch a pin or hair clip on it, and then use it to embellish a gift!
