How to Make Fabric Flowers

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. They are pretty simple to make and don't require much fabric. The fabric button finishes it off perfectly.

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.
