Easy Fabric Flower Tutorial

Happy Monday everyone! I love making pretty little things with fabric, and flowers are some of my favorites! I make a variety of fabric flowers, but these are some of the easiest and fastest. You can whip up a whole bouquet in an hour.

Here’s how to make a lovely flower of your own:

For each flower you need fabric (I love to use fat quarters!), matching thread, pins, a needle, and fabric scissors.

1. Cut round pieces of fabric, and cut petals into them. You need 8 larger rounds, and two smaller ones. The size of the larger rounds is the size the finished flower will be. Also cut a small square to use as the base of the flower.

2. Fold one of the larger rounds into fourths.

3. Sew it onto the square of fabric with a couple of stiches.

4. Add three more folded sections. Continue to layer 4 more of the large rounds on top of the first layer.

5. Squeeze the centers of the smaller sections together, and sew to the middle of the flower.

6. Now the flower is complete, it just has to be fluffed.

7. Take each of the folded sections, and unfold them so that it creates volume in the fluffy flower.
