Quilt Scrap Flowers

Don't throw away those old tattered quilts. Instead, use them to create your own Quilt Scrap Flowers. Create one or design an entire bouquet and place them in a vase. Once you learn how to make fabric flowers, you'll never buy real blooms ever again. Scrap fabric crafts also help you save money on fabric and other supplies. The worn rustic look and vintage feel are a real throwback to the good old days.



Materials:

  • Lightweight cardboard
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Sewing machine
  • Rusty barbed wire
  • Bolt cutters (heavy-duty wire cutters)
  • Hot glue gun
  • Needle and thread

 

Instructions:

  1. Trace a 5-inch flower on lightweight cardboard and cut out. I sketched a flower freehand, but you could also use a large flower cookie cutter or a die-cut. Cut out the flower. Using the 5-inch flower as a pattern, trace another flower on cardboard. Remove the pattern and trace 1/2 inch inside the flower. Cut out the second flower on the inside line. Trace a 2 1/4-inch circle on cardboard for the flower center. Cut out the circle.


     
  2. Lay cutter quilt or bedspread scraps on your work surface with the wrong side facing up. Trace two mirror-images of the large flower pattern, one small flower and one center on the back of the scraps. Cut out the flower shapes.


     
  3. Place the two large flowers together with the right sides facing out. Line up the petals and pin the flowers together. Sew around the edge using a zigzag stitch.


     
  4. Choose which side of the flower is the front. Center the small flower on the front and pin. Sew around the edge of the small flower using a zigzag stitch.


     
  5. Place the flower center in the middle of the small flower and pin. Sew around the flower center using a zigzag stitch.


     
  6. Cut a 14-inch length of rusty barbed wire using bolt cutters. Use pliers to straighten the wire.
     
  7. Apply hot glue to the first inch on one end of the wire. Place the glue end of the wire on the center-back of the stitched flower.
     
  8. Cut a 1-inch-wide by 2-inch-long rectangle from a quilt scrap. Place the rectangle over the glued end of the wire. Sew a whip stitch around the rectangle to attach.

This is a great way to give a worn out quilt new life as well as to use those itty bitty fabric scraps. Using wire gives tithe ability to bend these blossoms into various shapes for more fun! These would look great in a vase or individually as a wearable brooch!
