Fabric Flowers

Fabric Flower #1

Supplies:
Fabric of your choice
Color coordinating thread
Needle
Scissors
7/8" Covered Buttons or size of your choice
Hot Glue Gun and Glue

Instructions:
1. Cut two strips of fabric the length (longer = more "smooshed") and width (bigger overall layer) that you desire for your flower layers. for this flower, you want one strip that is longer and wider than the other to create the two layers.
2. Fold one strip in half and hand sew a running stitch along the cut sides, not the fold. then, join the two sides together and pull to create a ruffly circle. 
3. Repeat step 2 for other strip.
4. Hand stitch together each seam to prevent fraying and to join the two ends together to form a complete circle.  In addition to stitching the ends, you could also use fray check and/or pinking sheers.
5. Using 7/8" covered buttons, follow the package instructions and cover a button with your selected fabric.

6. Put it together: I chose to hot glue my layers and button together because I'm a big fan of the glue gun.  You could, however, stitch the button to each layer and each layer together. 
7. Attach the flower to a pin, hair clip, etc.

Fabric Flower #2

Supplies:
Fabric of your choice
Petal Stencil
Color coordinating thread
Needle
Scissors
Covered Buttons, regular buttons, or beads
Glue Gun and Glue

1. First, cut out the flower pattern. Using my amazingly precise Cutter Bee scissors and a petal stencil that I cut from card stock.
2. Second, fold the edge of the petals over and pull each one through a piece of strong thread.  After the last petal is threaded; then, pull the thread through the first petal and pull both sides tightly to create the flower.
3. Then, secure a small button in the center of the flower with the hot glue gun.
4. Attach your flower to a pin, hair clip or whatever you would like to adorn!
