No-Sew Fabric Flower Tutorial

I’ve been using these little no-sew fabric flowers in all sorts of projects lately.  They are perfect for embellishing small projects and make an excellent gift topper.  I used my fabric flowers as magnets for my DIY Magnet Board.

The first time I tried making a similar fabric flower, I sewed it. I thought the sewed version looked messier, so I played around with the design and came up with a new (easier) way to make a simple fabric flower embellishments that doesn’t require any sewing! (It was yo-yo flower I tried – I guess I just need more practice, lol.)

The best part about these easy flowers, other than the no sewing, is you can whip them out by the dozen, in just a few minutes. 

All you need is fabric, a bit of glue (I used hot glue) and a few coordinating buttons. You create a circle template, make a few folds, and secure with glue. Top with a button and that’s it!

Different circles make different sized flowers and if you have a cutting machine, you could use that to cut out your circles and save even more time.

  2. tonight i made one of these just to try the technique and use some scrap fabric i have… then i made 2 more! they were just so easy and darned cute! now i've completely changed some pillow cases i'm making just so i can use these flowers on them! they'll look great in my daughter's hair, too (when she grows some) 🙂 thanks!

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

    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!

  4. Love these! I just made a few to complete my little girl's Jubilee outfit. So easy and cute!

    1. Forgot to mention that I added pictures of them to the Flickr group. Thanks again for sharing such a great tutorial!

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Thank you as I love to do flowers & these are so quick to do.I'll do a few xtra for the churches Easter fundraiser.

  11. Oh these are adorable, and so easy. I could NOT sew anything to save my life, so these are perfect. I see a whole bunch of these on my fridge in the near future…ha! Thanks for the great idea, I pinned it as well. Have a great day!
