More Fabric Flowers

I love the look of the Forever Fabric Flowers I made a few months ago.  They’re also fun to make, using all those squares.  However, I wanted that look on a recent project, but without the raw edges that are left in the middle.  I came up with this pattern, and so far it’s worked out great.  Same look, finished edges.

You can print this pattern, cut it out, line it up so you have 5 points and tape it together.  It ends up being 25 1/2″ long and 4 1/2″ wide, once you cut it on the fold as indicated on the pattern.

Fold fabric so right sides are together and stitch 1/4″ from zigzaggy edge, leaving ends open.

Trim and clip corners.  Turn right side out and press.

Turn one end 1/4″ to the inside of the tube and press.  Slide the other end inside that and stitch.  You should end up with something that looks a lot like a crown.  If you’re having a rough day, throw it on and wear it around for a while.  I’ll wait.

Hand stitch a long running stitch close to the straight edge using doubled thread.  Pull tight to gather.  Knot the end.

Stitch a button through the center onto whatever you’re flowerizing.

Come back on Monday, October 25th and I’ll show you what I attached mine to!

  7. Love the tutorial and this was very easy to make! Only problem is, it’s HUGE as a hairclip on my 5-year-old’s head! Think I need to make her a smaller one. Any tips for how to scale it down?


    • You could try scaling the pattern smaller using your printer settings. The only problem I can see is that it might be more difficult to turn right side out because the channels between the petals will be that much smaller. I’d try it with some throwaway fabric first. Good luck Amy!
