Scarf Flower


Materials:

  • Fabric
  • Straight pins
  • Scissors
  • Thread and needle
  • Repositionable glue
  • Pattern if needed


Instructions:

  1. Create a pattern for your flower out of heavy card stock or just cut out a flower shape free hand. Cut several pieces and keep in mind they don’t have to be perfect or even symmetrical.
     
  2. Layer four or five on top of each other. Grab the center of ALL of them and twist. Using your needle and thread secure the point.
     
  3. Once secure you can add beads to the center of the flower. More pieces of fabric will create a full flower while only 2 or 3 will make your flower lay more flat.
     
  4. Decide how you want to attach your flowerete. You can use a needle and thread or repositionable glue.

I see me looking for dollar store scarfs for these flowers.And folding the fabric to cut more than one at a time is smart especially the sheer. I always came out with the flower to bulky and it never looked right so I would try to find a finished one in colors I was looking for and leave frustrated. Never thought to use a scarf instead of fabric. I will be making many of these and use jewelry pin so I can remove and add a different one when I tire of the other one.Anyone else make any?

how do you stop the edges fraying?

I'm looking for a flower template... I don't draw free hand!

Great. Very clever and so simple
