Fabric Flowers Tutorial

Fabric flowers are one of those crafts that never go out of style. They are a great way to use up scraps that we can't bear to throw away. But what if you've tried every method out there and are pining for something new? That was my inspiration for these flowers. They are super easy and only take a few minutes to assemble, and you don't even need to sew! You can use them as brooches, hair clips, pins, rings or clothing accessories.

What you need:
Scrap fabric in contrasting patterns and colors
Circle maker template
Pinking shears
Thick felt
Ring base, comb base or pin back, your choice!
Chalk or pen
  Using the same fabric or a different one for each layer, draw and cut out circles in graduated sizes.
 Starting with the largest layer (the bottom of your flower), add a Tacky Dot to the center.
 Now add a piece of felt, then fabric, etc. Work with the fabric pieces that are largest to smallest.
 Keep going until you real the volume that you like.

 Add a gem or button on top!
I added this one to a crocheted flower and stitched a button on top. I then used
Aleene's® Max Tacky Adhesive™and glued it to a headband and added crystals trim and feathers. Sooo cute!
