I thought I’d post how I make my fabric flowers, as they are really easy and quite fun to do. It’s great way to use up your growing bag of leftover fabric! Once you have lots of flowers, you can make a bib necklace.
1. Cut a piece of fabric in a long rectangular shape.
The example here is about 5cm wide x 60cm long. Fold in half and iron out any creases.
2. Stitch along the open edge with a running stitch.
3. Use a bobby pin to create the flower.
Start turning the bobby pin to create the flower. Adjust the gather of the ruffles as you go to get the look you are after.
4. Stitch the flower into place from the back.
Don’t forget to remove the bobby pin! You can also use beads instead of buttons.
