- Scrap of Fabric
- Needle and Strong Thread
- Paper for pattern
You will need:
Make a pattern for a circle from the paper. My circle was 1 1/2" in diameter. Cut out 4 circles from the scrap fabric. I use scraps left over from my dresses so it us usually a t shirt knit. You can use woven fabric also but do not use fabric with a loose weave that frays easily.
Stack the circles and cut eight evenly spaced slits into the circles. Do not cut to close to the center.
Next, separate the circles then re-stack them so that the slits are not lined up with each other. This may seem like a silly step but it actually makes a difference in how they come out
Next thread the needle and knot the thread so you have a double strand. Take the needle and thread and stitch up through the center of the stack and then back out. Slip the needle in between the two strands of thread. Pull tight
Do one more stitch through the center and then knot off. Now you can sew your flower right on to whatever you like.
Here are some added to a new batch of dresses.
