Learn how to cut felt sunflowers on your Cricut using the Wavy Blade! These felt sunflowers make great gift toppers, hair accessories, and even embellishments for clothing — I’m putting mine on my “Cricut” dress!

I adore sunflowers! They are so bright and cheery, they spread seeds of happiness, and always make me smile! I’ve designed several paper sunflowers and sunflower designs (like for my waterslide tumbler), but today I’m doing something special. I’m using my new Cricut Wavy Blade on my Cricut Maker to quickly and easily cut over two dozen FELT sunflowers so I can embellish a dress. Why, you ask? Because I was invited to Cricut Headquarters in Utah and decided I MUST have a Cricut dress. And so my felt sunflower (and grass skirt) was born! You can cut this simple sunflower out of either felt or paper, using a regular blade or the wavy blade — your choice!

If you’re curious about the Cricut Wavy Blade, this is a new Maker Tool introduced this summer! Learn more about it and the other Maker Tools over in my Cricut Maker Tool Guide! The great thing about the Wavy Blade is how FAST it can cut out this detailed flower — without the wavy blade, these sunflowers would have taken a long time to cut out all of the wavy edges. No wavy blade? You can still cut these sunflowers out with a regular blade!

How to Make Felt Sunflowers for a Cricut Dress

First, download my sunflower design (Design #159)from my free resource library (you can get a password for it at the bottom of this page). If you’re going to cut the felt out on your cutting machine, upload the file to your design software. If you’re not sure how to upload an SVG cut file to Cricut Design Space, watch this helpful video training series I made. If you’re on an iPhone or iPad, here’s how to download and upload SVG files to the Cricut Design Space app.

Here’s what my felt sunflower SVG design file looks like uploaded to Cricut Design Space. Note that no ungrouping, attaching or scoring is necessary in this design. Just click that green Make It button and you’re good to go!

Note that if you use the Cricut Wavy Blade, you’ll want to change the designs from “Cut” to “Wave” in the Linetype menu at the top of Cricut Design Space.

When all of the pieces are cut, just put them together and attach them with glue or thread! You can even put cute faces on if you use embroidery thread, like this!
