Today I’m going to share with you a simple way to make fabric flowers.

I plan on using mine for home decor, but you could use yours to pin on clothing or wearing your hair.

I may do a Facebook live with one hand in my hair!

The hardest part of my flowers was pulling spices and dishes from my cabinets. But I made it easier for you by creating a downloadable template.

The steps

My first step was finding spice containers and dishes to make circles. I started with the 1-inch spice container. In another about an inch and a half and so on. After I had seven circles I stopped.

Pin the paper circles to your fabric and cut around the circle.

I wanted shabby flowers, So what I got A few of the flower circles wet, Then them in a laundry bag for delicates. I toss the bag in the dryer for a few minutes until the circles were dry. This frayed the edges.  And I had to iron the circles a bit. 🙁

Some circles I folded in half, and then in quarters. Then either pinked or scalloped the edge.

I wanted different results when I opened the circles.

To add a little ruffle to the edges. Go around the circle with your thumb and index finger and twist about every inch.

Then I stack layers.  Noticed some of my fabric is burlap.

I use the floral wire to “sew” through the layers adding a button or bead for the center.

Are you going to use your flowers for clothing or hair? Sew with dental floss and then add a pin. Also, you can glue the center of the flowers with fabric glue.

I didn’t want wait for the glue to glue dry!

Now I’m going to go get the black marker off my dishes!

  1. I love the Idea of repurpusing my material leftovers even if they are tiny. I am creating some note books to be given to an organism who takes care of people in their last days of life. My youngest sister was so well taken care there, in nov. 2021, and it is a way of helping as I can’t do physical work for them. I will put some of your flowers on the covers. or elsewere on my creations. I will give them what I will do this winter, for their annual summer auction. Thank you for all the information you gave on Pinterest as I get a lot of ideas there. (Excuse my english, I am a French canadian.
