This cute fabric flower is made from folded fabric circles and is a great way to use of fabric scraps.
- embroidery floss
- sewing needle
- hot glue
- pin back
- circle template (3 inch)
- Create a 3" circle template out of cardboard. Use the template to trace 5 circles onto the fabric. Then cut out the circles.
- Fold the fabric circle in half, then in half again. Finger press the folds.
- Divide a length of embroidery floss into a 3 strand piece, then thread it onto the needle. Knot the end, then do a running stitch along the curved edge of the fabric, as shown below. Then gently gather the fabric towards the knotted end.
- Repeat until you have all 5 petals strung onto the thread.
- Scoot the petals away from the knotted end so that you have a length of thread to tie at that end. Bring the two ends of the thread together, bunching the petals up. Tie off the ends of the thread.
- Cut a small circle of felt and hot glue it to the back of the flower.
- Now use embroidery floss to sew the button into the center of the flower.
- Glue a pin back onto the flower. Enjoy your new accessory!
