Fabric Poinsettias

First the inspiration:  Fabric Flowers from Made with My Two Hands!  You must stop by and see hers!  They are much better than mine!  'Very pretty!  Her technique is slightly different than mine, which frankly resulted in better flowers.



Here's mine and what I did.



The basic flower is made by cutting a circle of fabric.  I made two sizes using a saucer and a cereal bowl for my patterns.  Anything round will work.  Cut the circle in half.  Fold the half circle in half and sew a long straight stitch along the curved edge.  Gather.  This makes each petal.  Next, I used hot glue and attached them to a cardboard circle.  They could also be sewn.
 
Five petals seemed about right to me, but of course, you could certainly layer more.  Next, I glued another circle of cardboard on top!
 
 
Done!  In one afternoon, I made several and love them!  'Can't wait to show you what I'm doing with them!

  2. Marci what a fun project. Great pictures too. I may try this with my little one this weekend. Maybe we could put them on sticks or pipe cleaners and make a bouquet.

  5. That fabric flower is so cool! Ilove the giant poinsettia rather than the small flowers you usually see!
