Hobby Hump Day-Daisy Crazy Tutorial

There are a lot of ways to make fabric flowers out there. This is how I make mine…


Cut a template out of paper or cardstock. Mine is a 1×2″ rectangle with the ends rounded. You could also make them pointy.


Fold fabric over and pin template. Cut around it. Do this 6 times.


This is what you’ll end up with. (There are 12 pieces all together.)


With right sides together. Sew around edges of petals.


Using the blunt end of a wooden skewer, turn petals right side out.


This is what your petals will look like once turned right side out. Feel free to press them if you wish. ( I don’t)


Before you start to sew the petals together, pull top and bottom threads out at least a couple of inches. It will make gathering a lot easier.


Using the basting stitch line up petals and start sewing them together.


Make sure to leave another tail at the other end before you snip it off. Tie a knot with one of the tails using both threads.


Pull one thread of the unknotted tail and gather the petals. Be gentle. You don’t want to break the threads.


Stitch two ends of flower together.


Pin petals to fabric.


Sew flower to fabric along circle baste stitch.


Sew buttons in the middle of flower to hide stitching. Covered buttons are always cute.

Now its your turn to play. Share your hobby.
