- Download and print off the flower templates and cut two of each size from felt – using the green felt for the large size, the pink for a medium size, and the peach for the smallest size. (Note: These templates are located at the bottom of this page.)
- Place each pair of felt flower pieces together, aligning the edges neatly. Pin, then work a straight machine top stitch around the edge of the shape to join the two layers together, leaving a seam allowance of around 1/4”.
- Make the large flower center by cutting two 4.5” circles from the pink felt, then layer them up and stitch around the edge in the same way as above. Repeat to cut and stitch two peach 4.5” circles for the medium flower center, and two pink 3.5” circles to create the smallest flower center. To vary the design, you can add a second, slightly smaller circle of felt on top of the first for a layered design.
- Lay your felt flower shapes down and place the central circles into position in the middle of each one. Pin, then thread two strands of pink embroidery thread onto a needle and work a series of French knots across the center circle, working through all layers to hold everything together.

Too cute but not everyone has a way to print patterns off!! Would be nice to be able to get a REAL pattern!!
Easy peasy – Just like Grandma Hanson taught me – but open a brown paper shopping bag, figure out how round the pattern needs to be for pan protection, play a little bit of folding into your six petal sections – somehow cut your master “templates” to be just proportionate sizes smaller to build out your various sizes – cut out your cloth sections – sew away! And then assemble.
I am 74 years old, resingled for the last 28 years and very tired of marking up all of my expensive cooking pans and baking ware. By cutting out “brown paper bag patterns” first, I actually made customized tabs to make extension tabs with velcro to wrap around my cast iron (and well-seasoned) griddles for all surface protection. Also, I designed other velcro tabbed fabric protectors that can be tossed into the washer / dryer to protect other kitchen investments.
Brown paper bag pattern making always worked as I grew up as a single kid with a Mother who taught me so many easy living skills. And yes, I do have dual Master Degrees, full retired military service, and can still open door for a lady! But making cooking for myself comes first so I can get on with my day!
Love this idea. Will make cute and useful gifts!
