How to Make

    Rose Ring
  1. Cut a large flower shape with a large area in the centre and shallow petals from red felt.
  2. Starting from the edge of a petal, carefully cut into the felt in a circular motion to create a spiralled shape.
  3. Take the centre of the spiral and start stitching the felt together. Work your way out from the middle to create a rose.
  4. Fix a small circle of felt to the bottom of the rose. Heat up the glue gun and stick the flower to the top of a ring blank.
    Butterfly Ring
  1. Cut two butterfly shapes, one slightly smaller than the other, from dark and light purple felt.
  2. Place the smaller motif in the centre of the larger one then stitch the butterflies together.
  3. Heat up a glue gun then fix the butterflies to the top of a ring blank.
    Pin Cushion Ring
  1. Cut six same-sized petal shapes from different coloured felt. Join two shapes by stitching the middle section together.
  2. Continue adding more shapes by stitching the middles until they are all attached in a line. Now sew the first and last shapes together to make a ring.
  3. Carefully stitch the tops of the shapes together and repeat for the bottom but leave one section un-sewn.
  4. Using the unstitched section, turn your shape inside out so that none of the sewing is visible. Using very small stitches, close up the remaining gap. You will now have a flat circular shape.
  5. To make a 3D motif, gather the bottom of the shape together and tightly stitch it in place. Wrap a length of embroidery thread around your motif for a decorative effect, securing the ends at the bottom then use a hot glue gun to stick the shape to a ring blank.
    Embroidered Ring
  1. Cut two 4cm diameter circles from green felt. Sew a sequin to the centre of one then stitch concentric circles around the sequin.
  2. Turn the embroidered shape over so the sequin is on the reverse then stitch the circles together, leaving a small gap to turn your work inside out.
  3. Once you have turned your work, carefully close up the gao with small stitches.
  4. Heat up a glue gun then use this to stick your embroidered shape to a ring blank.
then stitch the circles together, leaving a small gap to turn your work inside out.
  • Once you have turned your work, carefully close up the gao with small stitches.
  • Heat up a glue gun then use this to stick your embroidered shape to a ring blank.
