Materials List

  • Wool felt (in four shades)
  • Hot glue gun and glue sticks
  • Cushion
  • Fabric circle cutter


  1. Use the fabric circle cutter to quickly and easily cut multiple circles from wool felt. To use the circle cutter, fold the wool felt in half and align the guide markings on the circle cutter with the fold. Place the cutting tool in the slot as shown, press down and draw the tool through the slot to achieve a perfect circle every time.

  2. For this cushion, you will need a total of 22 size 4 circles and 50 size 3 circles. To create the flower center, you will need 6 size 2 circles. We used 4 different colors for our cushion. If you want to do the same, here's the breakdown for the number of circles you'll need for each round of petals.
    • Round 1 (size 4 circles of color 1) – cut 22 circles 
    • Round 2 and 3 (size 3 circles of color 2) – cut 34 circles
    • Round 4 and 5 (size 3 circles of color 3) – cut 16 circles
    • Center flower (size 2 circles of color 4) – cut 6 circles

  3. Fold two sides of each circle in towards the center and glue in place with a hot glue gun. Repeat for every felt circle.

  4. Draw a 10” diameter circle on the center front of your cushion cover. Tip: trace around a dinner plate for a quick, accurate template.

  5. Glue the folded size 4 circles around the circle with the glue gun until the circle is entirely covered.

  6. For the next round of circles, offset the position of the petals from the round before and glue in place.

  7. Repeat for 3 more rounds until you have 5 rounds of petals and are ready to create a center for the flower.

  8. To create the flower's center, fold 5 circles into quarters and glue them together. Adhere each of the folded circles on the remaining size 2 circle and glue to the center of the cushion.
