Fabric flower project!
You will need: 3 inch square fabric pieces (or larger if you would like to make your flower bigger). Felt, a safety pin and 1 button, you may need a hot glue gun depending on how you would like to finish your item.
Step 1: Take a square and fold it in half, and then turn the corners in to the middle to create a triangle, and the sew along the botton edge.
Step 2: repeat step 1, 7 more times so you have 8 triangles in total. You can leave them attached for quickness and then separate them afterwards.
Step 3: Take a contrasting colour and repeat step 1 using just 5 pieces of fabric.
Step 4: Using a strong cotton or double thread, sew a running stitch along the bottom of the triangles to join them all up, pull the thread to gather up and create petals, making sure that they all face the same way with the fold at the front. Secure the end of the thread. Do this for both parts of the flower, and then cut a circle of felt.
Step 5: Either sew or glue gun your petal circles onto the circle of felt (I used a glue gun for quickness). I then sewed a button onto the middle of the flower, you can attach the safety pin or a brooch back to the felt circle too (see picture).
