DIY Fabric Flowers

Fabric flowers are everywhere and you can DIY!

Cut out circles from a t shirt. You’ll need 7 identical size circles for each flower.

One circle will be the base. Fold the other circles in half then in thirds.

Glue each petal down using fabric glue.

You can add a button or any embellishment you like to the middle.

Hats love a nice fabric flower.

Cute flowers can dress up anything.

Have fun!

    Beth, these are adorable!! And, lol, finally! I have actually made something similar. I used felt instead of fabric, but basically the same concept. Your buttons add a new level of cuteness, and the hat is just perfect! The whole outfit goes so nicely together.

    Happy Sunday, lady πŸ™‚

  2. Super cute! I can’t seem to get tired of fabric flowers…

    Hi! Thanks for stopping by my blog and for the Like! This is a great idea, one I have been intending to try for some time but haven’t gotten around to yet. Do you have a pattern for the hat too? I have been learning to make hats too – made one from a hideous old pair of green corduroys that looked GREAT as a hat!! LOL I gave it to my friend’s 8-year-old son, who loved it and thought it looked like a “train person’s” hat, as he said.

  24. Very cute! I’ve made a lot of these out of ribbon with vintage buttons, but I like the possibility of using scraps from other upcycling projects that this affords πŸ™‚

    Any tips on making hats? I’ve a pair of grey work trousers that are dying (okay, they should have been retired already but I’m cheap) and I’d love to make a newspaperboy typr of hat out of them. I think the color would make a great base for all different decorations.

  25. Here’s a link to a tutorial I did on making a hat from an old sweater.
    It would work great for a pair of trousers too.
    Let me know how it works. I’d love to see pictures!
    Have a good night!

  35. twistnpout says:

    Oh boy, I think I have found another possible obsession. i love these flowers!

  36. Your flowers are taking the world by storm, Beth! Even little girls I know are making them now! πŸ™‚ Thanks once again for the timeless tutorial that gives so much fun and happiness to all your sewing and crafting friends. And have a GREAT summer! πŸ™‚

  37. These are so pretty! I’ve been making fabric roses lately which have a lovely shabby chic kind of look to them but these flowers look a little more “finished” if that makes any sense! Perfect to adorn so many things! Thanks for the tute!

    These are terrific ideas. You are very talented. My mother was like you. Unfortunately, most of her creativeness came from need. One item I remember her making was a coat for one of my younger sisters. Mom had a mink coat that she cut down to fit a kindergartner. Guess in her case necessity was the mother of invention. Thanks for sharing your ideas.
