Fabric Flowers

The girls at our church wanted to make flower hair accessories for our activity this week, so today I'm sharing some of the flowers I made. I also made some with ribbon, but I've already shown those on my wreath last month.

I have a lot of fabric scraps & I thought this was a perfect way to use those scraps.

The striped flower was made by cutting a strip of fabric & folding it in half length-wise. It's gathered and rolled into a flower shape. This is a sewn flower to keep it's shape.

This polka dot flower is a simple one too. Cut a strip of fabric, gather it with thread on one end and roll up like a flower. Secure with thread as you go, so the flower holds it's shape. This one is embellished with a button.

The black flower is a pom pom flower and I have a tutorial here. The red flower is just like the tissue rosette I made here. Both of these flowers are made with a hot glue gun & you glue as you make it, so it will keep it's shape.

We hot glued flowers to headbands and clips the other night. These flowers will end up on headbands and clips as well. I'll be sure to show you the finished product once I match it to my dress :)
