Creating a fabric flower pattern is as simple as creating a paper flower. However, fabric can add quality, style and durability to a flower especially if you plan to attach it to a shirt or an accessory such as a headband. While there are plenty of fabric flower crafts that involve sewing, consider making a simple no-sew fabric flower that can use up some old fabric scraps and be made in as little as 15 minutes.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Sketch a large flower and a small flower on a piece of paper. Make sure both flowers have the same number of petals.

  2. 2

    Cut out the two paper flowers and lay them on top of your fabric.

  3. 3

    Pin both paper flowers to the fabric or trace the paper flowers onto the fabric using fabric chalk.

  4. 4

    Cut out both fabric flowers. Add dimension by cutting out two more fabric flowers from the large pattern and two more fabric flowers from the small pattern. Stack the three large fabric flowers and then the three small fabric flowers together to form one flower and glue each at the centre.

  5. 5

    Glue or sew a button or a small circle of fabric to the top centre of the stack of flowers to finalise your flower.
