Five Minute Fabric Flowers


Looking for a cheap and easy craft project? One that takes close to five minutes once you get the hang of it? Look no further, my friends.

You can see my little lady modeling my newest creation below. I made this fabric flower and attached it to this warm, fuzzy hat that I picked up at a garage sale… talk about thrifty!

The thing I love about these fabric flowers is that you can do SO many things with them. You can make them hair accessories, headbands, garlands, broches, bag accessories, gift bows, etc. etc. I also love that you can sew a button in the middle of them to give the fabric flower an entirely different look.

For instructions, keep reading!

1) Cut out 8 3×3 squares of fabric.

2) Fold in half. Now fold in half again.

3) Cut around the open edges to make it a rough looking heart. Don’t worry about preciseness. That’s the nice thing about these flowers, imperfection makes them look even better!

4) Squeeze the bottom together and run a needle through a couple of times. (Don’t secure a knot when done)

5) Repeat steps 2-4 and, sewing your bundled petals together each time. When all 8 pieces are sewn securely together, tie off your knot.

If you want to add a button, simply find a natural division in the middle to place the button and sew through the flower to secure the button. It’s that easy!

    Your design is great but I will be crafting flower crowns with children who may not be comfortable with sewing needles. Can a small claw clip be used to eliminate sewing completely?

    Hi there,
    I’ve recently started volunteering with people with dementia. This little project would be a great way to get involved. I am going to put together a folder with project ideas for the care home. Would you be happy for me to use this project and your images?
    Thank you,
    Tamsin

    I used this with a few other flower patterns and made my mother a bouquet for Mother’s Day! Thanks for your pattern I would have never thought to make them like this, it was so easy! Happy Mother’s Day!!
