The easiest way to make flowers with fabric ! You’ll just need to find non fraying fabric such as cotton knits or any other stretchy fabric. This will be an ideal project to use up odds and ends of fabric. You will need:

  • Fabric scraps.
  • Sewing thread and needle
  • Buttons (here’s the time to use your vintage or mismatched buttons)

Start with cutting the flowers. You can use the templates I created: download the document HERE.

Note: depending on the size of flowers you want, change the size of the document when printing.

You’ll need a total of six layers: once the smallest flower, twice the small flower, once the middle-sized flower, and twice the largest flower.

Place the flowers on top of each other, with the smaller one on top.

I like to sew a few stitches back and forth through all layers to join them. Or you could handstitch them.

Now all you need is a pretty button. Voilà ! 

I hope you’ll like those. Feel free to share your fantastic ideas using those flowers, and send pictures of your projects.
