Below are four different fabric flowers you can make. I use blue satin fabric for the project.
If you can not find the satin fabric, then quilting cotton, silk, chiffon, or organza are excellent materials to make fabric flowers.
What You Need To Make Fabric Flowers.
- Fabric of your choice: cotton, organza, polyester satin
- Hand stitch needle
- Small plate
- A drinking glass or round cookie cutter
- Washable fabric marker
- Rhinestone, button, sequin, or any other accessories you like
- Circle Felt
- Glue gun
How To Make Fabric Flowers
You probably want to press the fabric first if it looks wrinkle like mine here.
The easiest way to make a circle shape on fabric is by using this little plate and drinking glass.
Pinwheel Fabric Flower
Below is the tutorial for making Pinwheel Fabric Flower.
Any type of fabric is great for making a pinwheel. Use the washable fabric marker to mark the fabric, use the small plate to make a circle.
Use the drinking glass to make the smaller size. Use scissors, cut the round marked fabric.
Thread the needle, now stitch around the circle, then pull the thread and make a knot to secure it. Use glue gun to attach the rhinestone or button. If using a button, just stitch the button into the middle of the pinwheel fabric.
Five Petal Fabric Flower
Below is the tutorial for making Five Petals Fabric Flower.
Any type of fabric is great for flower shape. Use washable fabric marker to mark the fabric, use the drinking glass or round cookie cutter to make five circles.
Fold in half, then fold it again so it will make a quarter size. Stitch along the raw edge, then keep stitching for all five circle.
Pull the thread, stitch it back few times then make a knot to secure it. Hand stitch a button or use the glue gun to attach the rhinestone or any other accessories into the middle of the flower.
Ruffled Fabric Flower
Below is the tutorial for making Ruffled Fabric Flower.
To make the ruffle fabric flower, it is best to use organza or satin fabric. Use the washable fabric marker to mark the fabric. Here I make a long wavy line.
Use the scissors to cut the marked fabric. Burn along the edge of the wavy cut fabric to seal the raw edge.
Hand stitch along the straight cut, pull the thread, stitch the center few times then make a knot to secure it. Hand stitch a button or use the glue gun to attach the rhinestone or any other accessories into the middle of the ruffle flower.
Pompom Fabric Flower
Below is the tutorial for making Pompom Fabric Flower.
I use polyester satin for this one. Use washable fabric marker to mark the fabric, use the drinking glass or round cookie cutter to make five circles.
Burn the fabric along the edge to seal the raw edge and prevent fraying. Fold in half then fold it again, use the hand stitch needle to make two stitches in the corner then continue stitching with the other circles.
Make a few stitches then make a knot to secure it. Hand stitch a button or use the glue gun to attach the rhinestone or any other accessories into the middle of the pompom flower.
How To Use Fabric Flowers
From the four designs above, there are lots of possibilities how to use the fabric flower. My favorite way to use it is for hair accessories, you just put one hair elastic and a little piece of circle felt, then attach it to the bottom of the flower using a glue gun.
It was a big hit too when I sell it during the garage sale event in our community. The image above is how I display them for the sale.
