I know you all know how much I love to make fabric flowers.
I hope you aren’t getting sick of them yet!
I’m going to show you a fun twist to make a fabric flower more unique and festive.
Flowers are so easy to make, and when you finish it you can’t help but smile.
The real reason I made this flower is because I failed miserably on another craft I was working on.
If you ever have a discouraging moment after a craft, maybe you should make a flower. It will make you feel better!
I do apologize for the quality of these pictures. Sometimes a girl just has to craft at night. 🙂
Iron down the raw edges of the fabric strip. I folded my edges over about 1/2″.
Fold in half and iron it again. Putting folded edges together.
Place the Ric Rac in the fold so half of it is still visible. Pin the Ric Rac as you go.
Sew the Ric Rac in place.
Now you will stitch along the bottom and gather it to form your flower. There are more detailed instructions on this in my tutorial Simple Fabric Flowers.
I glued a Felt Circle and a Single Prong clip to the back. To finish the flower I added a lovely button to the front center from my Flirtation Button Jar.
