No Sew Fabric Flowers

no Sew Fabric Flowers


I've been using these little  no-sew fabric flowers in all sorts of projects lately.  (Projects coming soon...)  The first time I tried making a fabric flower, I sewed it.  I thought the sewed version looked messier, so I played around and came up with a new way to make easy fabric flowers embellishments.  The best part is, there is no sewing involved and you can make one in just a couple of minutes.

Are you ready to see how to make some for yourself?  Here is what you need to make a No-Sew Fabric Flower:
  • Fabric scraps
  • Buttons
  • Marker
  • Scissors
  • Round object to trace
  • Hot glue (or other craft glue)
1.  Trace a circle on to the back of the fabric and cut the circle out.


2.  Fold the circle into fourths and draw a little mark like what is shown below on all sides of the folded circle.  This will make a little circle in the middle.


3.  Add a little dab of glue on the line of the little circle you drew with the glue gun.  Fold one of the edges over as shown.



4.  Add glue and fold the other three sides up.


5.  Add glue and fold over the four pointy corners, one at a time.



6.  Add a little more glue, a pretty button and you're done!


Try different size circles and bunch together for a cute look, or try stacking a small and large flower for a big impact.

  20. Had to make a comment because I really think this is an easier flower - it rivals the yoyo but in a fraction of the time. Very impressive. Thanks for the entire tutorial!! Now I don't have to wonder, "now, how was this done?"

    Take care, Linda

  65. Just found your blog tonight and love those flowers. Alot quicker and easier than others I've seen. Those I can make. My hands don't work too well anymore so making the flowers you have to twist and sew and all that hasn't worked too well for me. Your flowers would be a good change also to so many others I've seen. Fabric flowers are sure the "thing" now aren't they? Love it as I have lots of fabric and old buttons.
    Thanks for great tutorial.

  66. Flowers are beautiful and easy to make. I have lots of scraps and buttons to use. I can add to scarves and hats. Thanks for the idea.

  67. These are so cute, I put a magnet inside and used them to decorate my fridge. I am thinking I can do that for all the holidays.

  68. These are really cute, I made them into magnets for teacher gifts. I used a CD as a template and it worked perfectly, even used the center of the CD to mark the middle!

  70. trying to make these for my daughters but mine keep coming out pretty crooked looking...any tips? thanks!

    ReplyDelete

    1. If you look at the title photo, you'll see I had one that was pretty crooked too and the rest were "almost" round. They come out best if you cut a perfect circle and then find the exact middle and create a smaller circle around the middle spot and fold up to that. (See the pics above...)
      Good luck!
