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


  • fabric
  • embroidery floss
  • sewing needle
  • button
  • felt
  • hot glue
  • scissors
  • pin back
  • circle template (3 inch)


  1. Create a 3" circle template out of cardboard. Use the template to trace 5 circles onto the fabric. Then cut out the circles.
  2. Fold the fabric circle in half, then in half again. Finger press the folds.

  4. 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.
  5. Repeat until you have all 5 petals strung onto the thread.
  6. 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.

  10. Glue a pin back onto the flower. Enjoy your new accessory!
