Fabric flower

I’ve seen lot’s of fabric flower tutorials. I have been wanting to try one, but I wanted it for myself. So many of them are aimed toward baby girls. That’s great- except I only have baby boys. :(

So, I decided to try this one!

First, I cut out my circles. (I didn’t have satin, or sating ribbon like one of the comments suggested, so I used the closest material to satin I could find in my stash.)


Then, I started burning. It wasn’t as easy as I thought it might be, but it did work. (Also, I didn’t have a lighter, only matches! heehee)


It took a few times of recutting and reburning to get the sizes/shapes I wanted. But in the end I was pleased with it. (I didn’t use all of my original circles.)


Then, I added a super cute and sparkly button. By simply sewing through the pieces of fabric and through the button.

My final finishing touch was a bobby pin, slipped through the thread in the back.


Now, I can wear it in my hair.


Or on my necklace. (No, I don’t think I like this one.)


Or on my shirt. (I just made it stay, I would use a safety pin, if I liked the way this looked.)


Probably in my hair!

I’m happy with the way it turned out. (It doesn’t really match my pink shirt though, so I’ll have to go change… maybe plain black?)
