Sewing Fabric Flowers

Need a simple little sewing project this week? These little fabric flowers can be made in about 5 minutes and there are so many things that you can do with them! Add them to clothing, hats, headbands, belts, or just about anything else you can think of.

My favorite part about this project is that you can make it with little fabric scraps so it’s very inexpensive to make. Let’s get started!

Cut Circle

Cut a circle from a scrap of fabric. My circle is about 2 inches in diameter but you can cut yours to any size depending on what you plan on doing with your flower.

Flower Circles

Use your first circle as a template and cut an additional 5 circles so that you have 6 circles total.

Flower Petals Fold

Take one of the circles and fold in half, and then in half again until it looks like the image above.

Add Petals

Sew the folded circle onto one of your other circles that you will use for a back.

Flower Petals

Continue folding the rest of the circles and sewing onto the “back” circle. You will only need to sew one or two stitches at the point end of the folded circles to keep them on the back.

Sewing on Petals

Continue until you’ve folded and sewn all of the circles onto the back circle.

Button Centers

Finally, sew a button onto the middle. I found these cute little wooden buttons on Amazon, I use them for all kinds of things!

Once you’ve sewn your button on you are done! That’s really all there is to it. 🙂

Flower Belt

Here are some fabric flowers that I made and sewed onto a simple little fabric belt. So fun and easy to do!

  1. Love these. I’m going to make smaller ones to add to doll clothes I’m making for my 4 year old granddaughter.

  2. These are so cute, thrifty, too. I’m already imagining stocking stuffers and whatnots I can make with fabric flowers. Thanks for posting.

  3. These are so cute and easy! Thanks for sharing this idea with us. I will be making some for gluing on the sides of Mason jar vases, gift packages – they would even be pretty on a garland with fabric suited to the season. Love it!
