Simple Flowers from Scrap Fabric

One really cute way to make something lovely out of scrap fabric (that you might otherwise bin) is to make scrap fabric flowers.

Step 1: Make your Scrap Fabric “Petals”

So for both I started off with making the petals of the flowers.

I used a zigzag stitch around the edge of each of my petals. I used a shorter stitch for the thin men’s shirt cotton and a longer one for the tweed and quilted fabrics.

Step 2: Sew the edges of your Petals


To assemble your scrap fabric flower, all you have to do is lay out your petals in the design you like and pick out a pretty button (or several) to finish it off.

Step 3: Hand Sew Your Flower Together

Depending what you plan to do with your scrap fabric flowers you can choose to add a backing to finish it off.

Step 4: Add a backing (optional)

If however you are planning to stitch these scrap fabric flowers straight onto another project like a bag or a hat or something you may not need any backing at all.
