These fabric flowers are so fun and easy to make. I used them on my mini Bakeshop Aprons and keep finding other uses for them because they are so much fun to make.
And they’re so easy too. My 7 year old can make them and she loves it.
What You’ll Need to make Easy Ruffle Fabric Flowers:
- Material (12 in x 3 in strip) These fabrics are from Riley Blake Designs (Love the happy colors!) You can cut your fabric longer for more ruffles
- Thread & needle
- Buttons or Jewels for the center
- iron and ironing board
Cut a 12 x 3 inch strip from your fabric. Iron the strip folded in half the long way. Fold right sides up.
Thread your needle. Double knot at the bottom. Then sew a straight running stitch (not on the folded side) along the strip…You can begin to pull and ruffle as you go. Don’t pull too hard or it will break your thread. Just pull slowly. Step 4: Keep pulling the thread slowly until it wraps around into a ruffle flower shape.
Step 5: Turn your flower to the back side and sew a few stitches with knots in the back (especially where the two ends of fabric meet). This will finish up your flower.
Add a jewel or a button to the center!
Then add them as an embellishment to anything you’d like! I added them to cute aprons for our Paris Bakeshop party!
