How To Make a Fabric Flower

These flowers are super easy to make, and if you use scrap fabric, they shouldn't cost you a penny. Use the flowers as a corsage or hairpiece, sew them onto a belt or pillow, or use as a gift topper — the possibilities are endless.

Decide Which Side Is Top and Which Is Bottom

Fold the strip of fabric in half the long way, pretty-side out. If you want the finished edge of the fabric as the top of the flower, gather it so the bottom is the unfinished edge. If you want a rough cut (thready) on top (which will give a good carnation look), gather the fabric so that the bottom is the finished edge.
