DIY Fabric Fabric Flower Tutorial

Things you’ll need:
Hot glue gun (and glue)
Chalk (or marker)

I made my patterns using regular paper and just freehanded a 5 petal flower about 2 inches across. You’ll also need a small circle pattern.
Using your pattern and chalk trace 7 flowers onto your fabric and 1 circle. Then cut out your pieces. If you used a marker instead of chalk be careful to cut inside your lines so your final flower won’t have marks on it. If you used chalk this isn’t a problem as the chalk will wipe off.

Take one of your fabric flower pieces and fold it in half.

Then fold it in half again, so it is quartered.

Use the scissors to cut the tip off of your quartered flower.

Put some hot glue along the edge of your cut.

Glue the flower to the circle piece of fabric. Repeat above steps for 4 flower pieces and glue the pieces in a square shape on your circle piece of fabric.

Use the remaining 3 flower pieces (quartered, cut, and glued) to fill in the middle of your flower. Now you’re done!

I used fabric glue to put this flower onto a tote bag I made. You could add these to headbands, clothing, bags, hair clips, or whatever your creative mind dreams up. You could also hot glue the completed flower to a pin if you wanted it to be removable. Happy crafting!! (I apologize for the sub-par pictures. They were taken in bad lighting with my phone.)
