- Circle template
- Hot glue Gun
- Pick your fabric cotton is best. If you use batiks remember to get a sharp needle since the weave tends to be tighter than regular quilters cotton.
- I like to starch my fabric to give nice crisp edges, although this isn't necessary, I do recommend it highly.
- Find a circle template. I use the tops for mason jars. For my small flowers about 2 3/4 of an inch across and the larger flowers I make about 3 1/4 across. FYI: The size of your template is approx the same width of your finished flower.
- Draw out circles for your petals. Small flowers I like 8-10 petals and larges ones I like about 12 for nice fullness.
- Cut them out.
- Fold circle in half and use your finger to press or an iron.
- Then half again and again finger press or use an iron.
- Find the middle, I like to pinch the middle or fold in half to find the center.
- Fold the side up to meet the middle and same repeat on the other side.
- Take your needle and thread and thread near the edge of the petal.
- Do the same to all your petals till they are all on the string.
- Pull nice and tight and tie a knot and clip your threads.
- Using your hot glue gun pump some into the center of your flower.
- Put your button of choice and glue in place.
- Cut out 2 round circles and glue one to the back of your flower and glue your pin in place.
- For added security glue your second felt circle down on top of the pin to hold it in place.
