Fun Fabric Flowers

With spring in the air I wanted to make some fun fabric flowers for my girls. I saw the instructions on how to do fabric flowers on another persons blog but the way they made them was a little more tedious than necessary.  So here is my easy version of fabric flowers.
Your going to need 4-6 squares of fabric for the petals.  For the white flower I wanted big petals so I did a four inch square.  For the other flowers I did a three inch square.
Fold your square in half so it's a triangle, with the wrong sides together.
With your sewing maching, baste around the raw edges.
Pull on your loose strings so it sinches the square up into a little petal.
Once you have as many petals as you want your going to take a button . .
and squirt a lot of hot glue on the back and attach your petals.  Be sure and clip your loose strings first though.
And that's all there is too it.  For the printed flowers I used a regular button and then cutesied it up with a scrapbook metal flower on top. Once you get your flowers done just hot glue them onto a hair clippy and your all set.  I made all three flowers in under an half hour - so this really is a fast and easy way to make them!


  1. Mariesa, These are darling! I'm going to make some to embellish the cute blue jean purse I just posted a tutorial for on my blog. I was getting tired of my traditional 'yo-yo' flowers and wanted something different. These will be perfect! I love them!

  2. Those are ADORABLE! I love the buttons that your "fancy-ed up"!! : )

  3. So cute! Love your blog, Its lots of fun to browse through! I found you via Somewhat Simple.
