How to Make Fabric Flowers

Anyone who sews knows that you end up with a ton of scrap fabric. If you’re like me, you save every bit in giant bins telling yourself “Oh, I’ll make use of it someday”. Well, that day has come…These fabric flowers are a great scrap busting project! They’re fun to make and they can be used for so many different things. Here are a few ideas

  • Glue to twigs for a pretty display that won’t wilt (like I did above)
  •   Use a decorations when wrapping presents
  •  Tie them on to a grapevine wreath
  • String them together to make garland  

Clover Flower Frills Template
Needle & thread
Scrap fabric (cotton or silk is best- lightweight & crisp, nothing thick or heavy)

This is what the template looks like. You fold the fabric in between and the number will match up.

With the fabric folded over,  fold the template across the middle where the number 1 is.

Fold inward, matching up the number 2s.

Fold over again, matching up the number 3s.

Holding the template at the end, cut around the top. Be careful not to cut into the template.

Thread a long piece of string through a needle. Insert the needle through the triangle of fabric at the end of the template. Once the needle is through, you can remove them template.

Keep stringing your petals along. You’ll need about 20 to make a nice, full flower.

 Pull the ends of the string gently to gather the petals together.

    Love these, but I wonder how much they fray.

    What a great invention. I use to make these for my etsy shop but I didn't have this contraption to work with. Might start making them again.
