Fabric Flowers Version 2

Grandma pulled a new fabric flower template out of her stash today. She and the girls have had a lot of fun making fabric flowers over the last month and now they have a new kind to construct. These are just as cute and slightly more advanced. Nevertheless, my five year old is able to participate in most of the process.

First the template is placed on the fabric.

Then both the fabric and template are folded.

Folding is continued.

Excess fabric is trimmed off.

One stitch is put through the pointed end to add it to the group.

A pin is placed through the middle of the group to hold it together in a neat stack.

Once around 18 are placed onto the thread the middle pin is removed.

The flower is tied into a circle.

The fabric is opened up and.......

Voila! A new flower to adorn a headband, shirt, cuff of capris, quilt or anything else you like.
