Fabric Flower

pinemeadows2 | Posted in General Discussion on

I want to make a fabric flower for a child’s top – thought this was in Threads awhile back, but it is not coming up when I do a search.

Would like something simple – I have cut out 3 flowers of varying sizes to give it depth, but it still looks so flat! 

Any ideas how to get a more “poufy”  flower?   I’ve tried sewing and stretching on a cotton knit too – and while that was better, it’s still not what I have in mind.

    Just how 3D do you want this flower!!?

    You can gather a strip of cloth and wrap it around a center or make individual petals of differing sizes.

    If you have back issues of Threads look at #111, March 2004, pg 62

    Hope this helps,

    Pinemeadows;There are also instructions for making flowers from satin ribbon which look quite real. If you are interested, I will look up a link for you.T.

    There is an article on wool flowers in the January 2007 Issue of Threads.

      You guys are great!  I think I've found something that will work, thanks to you all!

      Thanks again...

        When you get it finished, post a picture so we can see it!
