Behold the beautiful fabric flower that will compliment your spring wardrobe and is an absolute cinch to sew up! This project is great for utilizing an overflowing scrap fabric stash and only takes about fifteen minutes from start to finish…so it’s perfect for giving you a creative boost when time is of the essence! I sewed the coral flower for our Spring photo shoot using left over fabric for our newest patterns, Ginger and Violet…it looks simply adorable as a head band, tied around the base of a pony tail or bun, fastened at the neck like a collar, or worn as a crown with several flowers. There are also tons of variations possible for this little project: try increasing or decreasing the size of your accessory by experimenting with different sizes of fabric strips, use a few contrasting colors with sheer strips added in for effect or sew a larger button at the center for drama. Trust me, with a project so effortless, you’ll definitely want to make a bunch of these!
You will need:
- enough scrap fabric to make sixteen 5″ x 1″ strips. a few small pieces will do.
- scissors or rotary cutter
- hand sewing needle
- three small decorative pearl buttons
- a narrow piece of ribbon long enough to tie around your head
Step 1: Cut sixteen 5″ by 1″ strips from your fabric.
Step 2: Cut the square ends off each strip so the ends are pointy and diagonal.
