I have fallen in love with fabric flowers! They are so fun to make, I'm still new at it, but I want to share what I have learned so far! These I made by folding the fabric over.
These I made with just one layer of fabric for a frayed look.
I am going to teach you how to make the one with the folded fabric, although the concept is the same for both.
I then took my two ends of a folded strip and sewed it together on the machine (It can be done by hand if you don't have a machine). I was not doing this at first, but it provides a cleaner finish if they are sewn together first. You then take your sewing needle and stitch around the entire length very closely together (see pictures) and it naturally makes a circle.
Then you sew the middle sides together to close up the hole. You want to make sure you don't have any holes gaping open under your button, it is supposed to look like a flower after all. You are almost done!
Then with the thread still attached, position your flower where you want to sew it on your fabric and sew it through the button a few times to make sure it won't come off.
