These fabric flowers are so fun and easy to make. They add such a fun finishing touch to so many projects. Here are the quick and easy steps!
- Material (12 in x 3 in strip). Love the happy colors of these Riley Blake Designs fabrics! You can cut your fabric longer for more ruffles:)
- Thread & needle, and something for the center, (jewels or buttons)
Step 2: Thread your needle. Double knot at the bottom. Then sew a straight running stitch (not on the folded side) along the strip. You can begin to pull and ruffle as you go. Don’t pull too hard or it will break your thread. Just pull slowly.
Step 3: Keep pulling the thread slowly until it wraps around into a ruffle flower shape.
Step 4: Turn your flower to the back side and sew a few stitches with knots in the back (especially where the two ends of fabric meet). This will finish up your flower:)
Step 5: Add a jewel or a button to the center. You can sew or hot glue (we won’t tell!) to make the center nice and pretty.
Then scatter them about! You can add a pin back to them, or sew them right in place to adorn anything and everything. If you add a pin back you can switch them out for a new look.
We added them to a simple small bag from Hobby Lobby with a little iron on vinyl to create cute little bags with my church group of 8-9 year old girls.
The girls were able to make their own flowers and they loved it!
And onto aprons in the Paris Baking Party!
