Flowers on the go

Try as I may, I am a terrible gardener. However, I manage to have lots of vibrant flowers all year round. How, you ask? I tend to my flower garden with fabric of course!

Fabric flower embellishments are a fun and simple way to add a little or a lot of color, texture and dimension to your favorite sweater, coat, hat, or bag. I Also like them on pillows, ouside of basket liners, and on cloth napking rings...

Love this one because is cute, has a clean finish, and so quick to make!
Here we go:
1. Choose your fabric. I prefer a fun cotton print.
2. Cut your fabric in a strip measuring 3 inches wide and 12 inches long

3. Fold your fabric in half, right sides together and pin

4. Using a hand sewing needle, run stitch along the long open side of the fabric

6. While hold onto one end of the trip with one hand pull the thread with enough tension to create a gathered effect
7. Slip stitch the ends of the strip together

8. Sew a button or two in the center
9. Attach a safety pin to the back
and ready to wear!

Have fun!


  1. I just found your blog via craftster, and I'm so glad I did!
    This is so cute! And it seems simple enough that even someone like myself, a very-beginner-sewer (sewer-ha, that's probably not even the correct term!) could do.

  2. Thank you Maryek! you are always welcome to post comments and questions... and share with friends!
