Halloween fabric flowers.
Find out how after the cut!
What you need
Fabric of choice, 1 flower takes a strip of fabric 5 inches wide 45 inches long. I made some of mine shorter. The gray flowers are only 20 inches long.
Stems, I used sticks from my back yard.
hot glue gun.
Project time: about 2 hours for 12 flowers.
1. cut your strips of fabric, 5 inches wide by 45 inches long. You can cut them differently if you like this is just a guide, Some of mine were skinnier and some are shorter. Just be creative!
2. Fold your fabric in half length wise and iron it.
3. Mark your fabric every 3 inches.
4. After they are marked cut them in scallops. Do this for the rest.
If you do some different lengths you may want to make the scallops different sizes. I did some 2 inches instead of 3.
5. Sew a gathering stitch along the middle crease that you ironed in.
7. Stitch along the scallops, a regular stitch not a gathering stitch.
8. Pull the gathering stitch gently. I broke a few and trust me it is a pain!
9. Put a dab of hot glue on the top of a stick
10. Wrap the fabric around the stick and keep gluing. You can either wrap it around the stick for a closed look or glue and wrap it around the bottom of the bottom of the fabric for an open look.
11. Put your flowers in a vase and be proud of your awesome work!
