You can use any kind of fabric for this one. Knit fabrics don't fray on the open ends whereas many other fabrics will. Thicker fabrics will require a bigger hand-sewing needle where thinner fabrics don't. Etc. It just comes down to what you want it to look like! This flower I used leftover muslin from making my temple skirt.
- First cut 5 circles out of your fabric. (all the same size)
- Now take one circle and fold it in half. Instead of basting a stitch on the opened end of the half circle, like in the rounded flower (Here)
Pull the thread so it looks like this:
Continue to do this to all 5 circles.
- Sew the ends petals together. Make sure to secure at the bottom. Or you can always hot glue:)
- You can add a large button, gem, pearls, or a smaller fabric flower in the middle. Then cut a circle of felt and hot glue to the back of the flower and add a brooch pin or alligator clip.
Have a wonderful day!
