A Simple Sewing Tutorial for Fabric Flowers to Use as Craft Embellishments
Fabric flowers have many uses in the craft world. I use them to embellish pillows, adorn wreaths, and dress up a plain head band for my EXTREMELY girly daughter. I use them for so many things and since spring has officially sprung, I thought I’d post a tutorial for fabric flowers today.
These fabric flowers are so easy and inexpensive to make. All you need are:
The magic number that I have found to work best is five (pretend there are only five pictured below…haha!). Cut out five flower petals in the desired size. Remember that there will be five petals, so the larger the petals the MUCH larger the flower. If you choose a lighter weight fabric, you can cut all five petals out at once. The lighter the fabric, the flimsier the flower, however the more realistic they look.
Once you have your petals cut, sew your petals together, keep the ends of each side flapped down.
Continue sewing your petals together.
Once all five petals form the flower and are sewn together, sew a button in the center to complete your fabric flower.

Consider making them in several patterns, sizes, and fun colors! Add them to jackets, clothing, purses, and hair accessories. You can even use them to add a special touch to a gift or use them for weddings or baby shower and bridal shower decorations.
