Not one of our class projects, but try this no sewing required 6 step flower project.


I've been using these little no-sew fabric flowers in all sorts of projects lately. The first time I tried making a fabric flower, I stitched it. I thought the sewn version looked messy, so I played around and came up with a new way to make easy fabric flower embellishments. The best part about it was there was no sewing involved and you could make it in just a couple of minutes.


•Fabric scraps
•Buttons
•Marker
•Scissors
•Round object to trace
•Hot glue (or other craft glue)

Step-By-Step

1.Trace a circle on to the back of the fabric and cut the circle out.

2.Fold the circle into quarters and draw a little mark on all sides of the folded circle.  This will make a small circle in the middle.

3.Add a little dab of glue on the line of the small circle drawn with the glue gun.
 
4.Add glue and fold the remaining three sides up.
 
5.Add glue and fold over the four corners, one at a time.
6.Add glue to centre of flower and attach button.
