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.

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 🙂
I would love to see your creations!
I would love to show you! I made a headband for V-day. I’ll see if I can take a few photos and post them 🙂
Oh good, I’ll be waiting…..
Okay, but no holding your breath. 😉 It would be for inventory photos for Crafting Water and the Hubs does that, so it’s incumbent upon his availability. If you’re wanting to see asap, e-mail me your number and I’ll take a photo with my phone and text it to you. firstname.lastname@example.org
The pictures I get on my old phone are so fuzzy and bad. Whenever it’s convenient for you is fine with me 🙂
Super cute! I can’t seem to get tired of fabric flowers…
Those are SO cute! And I think even I could make them! 😉 and a HUGE congrats to you and you and your family with the baby coming!!! So exciting!! I send good wishes on a happy and healthy pregnancy!
Thanks so much Leanne! It’s fun to finally be able to share it with everyone! I’m so excited!
oh, so cute! I wonder where I need flowers? I will tuck this away in my memory.
You need to know, I pinned your fabric flowers, and they are being re-pinned like CRAZY! way to go, you talented lady!!
Hey, Thanks Leanne! How fun is that!
I want to make some of these and put them on a hair clip for Dee to wear – so cute! Keep the good ideas rolling!
Thanks Meg! I hope you’ll post some pictures of Dee wearing the clips!
I really like this flowers! Thanks for sharing.
I work with recycle fabric too and I created something similar.

I liked your flower and your blog. Thanks for visiting me. I hope you’ll come back again.
Thanks for the flower tutorial, cut flowers!
Simply lovely. And far less complicated than most fabric flowers! Thanks Beth 🙂
Love these! You’d never guess after looking at one that you could get this craft project done in under five steps, that’s just amazing. Thanks!
So lovely! Looks like even I could make them. Thanks for stopping by my blog — I’d love to feature you if you ever have a waffle or no-waffle.
What a great way to use up old t-shirts! I gotta try making some for my daughter!
Oh I hope you do! They are so easy and fun to make!
Those are super cute and on the hat…fantastic! A friend of mine always is making cloths for her grandbabies and will love this post! Also, thanks for stopping by my blog and for the like!
Those flowers are lovely, and so is your blog. Why I might just dust off my sewing machine!
Thank you! I hope you do dust off the ‘ol sewing machine. It’s so much fun!
Very cute! I will have to try these soon!
I hope you do. They are so quick and easy.

Thanks for taking the time to post this. I so want to try these one day.
I hope you try it. Super easy and fun!
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.
Here’s a link to the hat tutorial.
Let me know how it works. I’d love to see pictures!
I bookmarked this – thank you!!! Lord willing, I plan to make some of these for my REmissionary project.
Oh good, they are so fun and easy to make!
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 🙂
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.
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!
These are sooooo adorable and seem so simple to make! Thank you for entering this into the Green Crafts Showcase! I’ll be posting the top 10 features this Friday so I hope you’ll check back! 🙂

What a great idea and tutorial. i saw this and then made one of my own last night. i blogged about it today. I hope you don’t mind me showing how it is done too. I linked it to this tutorial which is a better explanation with far superior photos!

Oh boy, I think I have found another possible obsession. i love these flowers!
Always happy to create obsessions! 😉 So glad you are enjoying them!

Your flowers are taking the world by storm, Beth! Even little girls I know are making them now! 🙂 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! 🙂
You are so welcome!!! It’s fun to see what other people are making with them. Enjoy your summer, too!
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!
You are so welcome Tracey! I’m going to have to check out your fabric roses. I bet they’re beautiful!

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.
You are so welcome! I have so much fun sewing and blogging about it. Thank YOU for sharing your story with me. I really love hearing about how refashioning is a part of your life, too.
