Making the World Cuter: Friendly Friday-A Girl in Paradise

A blog where one woman is on a mission to make the world cuter, one kid, cupcake or crafty thing at a time.


Friendly Friday-A Girl in Paradise

Another Friday-another new friend! Today we have a fun little post from Ann-A girl in Paradise. Love the simplicity of these cute fabric flowers! :) I'll let her show you the how to...

So, I have been going a little crazy with the fabric flowers lately .... and I have become obsessed with buttons, who has the best selection, when they go on sale, and how best to use my coupons. I even dragged all three kids to a door buster sale at 8 in the morning, to get an extra 10% off. Don't worry they got rewarded for their good behavior with a trip to the playground and a box of munchkins. :) To be fair, I am making them into headbands, hair clips, and brooches for a craft show. Also, there are a few girls on my Christmas list who will be receiving these as gifts. Every little girl needs a flowered headband, don't ya think?

They are super cute and very easy to make, and since you don't need much fabric, no need to hit the fabric store. What you have in your stash will probably do.

You will need six 2-1/2" squares, strong thread, and a needle. I use cording as thread because I will be selling them and like the extra strength. Makes me sleep better at night to put out a quality product.

Fold your square in half diagonally and use a running stitch along the edge, to pull the pedal together.

Pull tight and knot after each pedal.


Once you have all six pedals done, connect to the first as shown above, to close in your flower.

Pull a button through the center and tie off.

This is where my button obsession comes in and dreams of vintage button stashes lull me off to sleep. I have found that buttons at least 7/8" work best to cover the raw edges. Have fun, and be creative, how about vintage earrings or rhinestones? The flower is just the starting point. Where you take it is up to you.

Here you go! One super cute fabric flower, that was super easy to make.
