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 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.
Use your first circle as a template and cut an additional 5 circles so that you have 6 circles total.
Take one of the circles and fold in half, and then in half again until it looks like the image above.
Sew the folded circle onto one of your other circles that you will use for a back.
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.
Continue until you’ve folded and sewn all of the circles onto the back circle.
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. 🙂
Here are some fabric flowers that I made and sewed onto a simple little fabric belt. So fun and easy to do!
