We love (LOVE) the fabric flowers at Emersonmade. Love them so much that they’re at the top of our to-make list right now. We just keep making them- for Piper Jane’s party favors, for friend’s birthday gifts, for baby girl’s wardrobe.
I love the way these little lovelies can add a little visual interest to a dress or a cardigan without having to permanently alter the garment.
Ready to make one for the little girl in your life? You’ll need:
-long thin strips of fabric (monochromatic, or in a few different colors/patterns)
-a circle of felt (this will be the backing)
-a button (or a cluster of little pearls) for the center
Cut your strips of fabric into 5″ or 6″ segments.
Fold each small strip in half and stitch to the felt.
Continue until you have a circle of fabric strips.
Move in toward the center of the circle and repeat.
Sew a button in the center.
Hot glue an extra piece of felt (to cover all of your stitching) and a pin to the back of your corsage…
…and pin one on your little model (or your best friend or your sister-in-law)!
