This cute fabric flower is made from folded fabric circles and is a great way to use of fabric scraps.
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!
