Fabric flowers

These are going to become hair clips to match another wrap dress.

If you want to make your own, you will need:

  • Fabric scraps, I used 2 different coordinating prints
  • Wonder Under
  • Flower template of your choice, I used the small one found here
  • Button for center, I used fabric covered ones
  • Needle and thread

I cut 2 3″ X 6″ rectangles of each fabric and 2 3″ X 6″ rectangles of Wonder Under.

Iron Wonder Under to wrong side of one rectangle of each fabric.

Peel off the paper backing. I realize this picture looks pretty much exactly like the last one. Shut up.

Put the wrong sides together and iron again.

Now you should have 2 sided fabric.
Trace/pin/whatever your flower shape to your fabrics and cut out. I doubled it up so I wouldn’t have to cut so much. I’m lazy like that.


You should have 4 flowers, 2 of each fabric.


Stack your flowers, alternating fabrics.

If you’re using a regular button, skip this next part. If you’ve never covered a button before, don’t be scared. It’s super easy. Cut out a circle in the shape of the template that comes with the buttons.

Put the fabric in the white thingy and follow the directions on the button package.


I take a stitch or two through the 4 layers of flowers before attaching the button, just to make sure stuff doesn’t shift around. Then, sew on the button. Tie it off on the back. I like to wad up my flower a bit aftewards so it has some dimension. Attach the flower to a clip or pin or whatever. This one found a home on a purse I made a while ago.

(Don’t look too closely…there’s a little blood on that button in the center.)
