How to Make Fabric Flowers

How to Make a Fabric Flower

Today I'm going to show you how I made these cute little fabric flowers. I made them to go on my fall table runner which I hope to share with you soon. They are pretty simple to make and don't require much fabric. The fabric button finishes it off perfectly.

Want to make your own fabric flower? 


You will need:
5 pieces fabric 3" X 4 1/2"
needle and thread
buttons {I chose to cover my own buttons with coordinating fabric}

How to Make a Fabric Flower

Step 1: With right sides together, sew your fabric pieces in half lengthwise.

Step 2: Turn right side out and press flat.

Step 3: Fold each piece in half.

Step 4:  With a needle and thread, stitch the open edges together.

Step 5: Continue on to the next fabric piece until they are all connected with the string.

Step 6: Pull the thread tight to gather. Tie off thread and cut off excess.

Then just add a button and you're done. I'm sewing these onto my table runner. Depending on the project you're using them for, you could just hot glue the buttons on.

Be sure to come back and see how they look on my table runner

I want to make more of these for other projects. What would you use them for?
