This DIY Fabric Flower is the ultimate scrap buster! You can make them to put on top of existing projects or to decorate just about anything, I made about 20 when I first saw this excellent video on Youtube. To get started you only need a few materials, below are instructions for one flower, of course, you can make as many as you want. I love sewing tips and hacks and this ribbon flower that I came across is no exception and it has quickly become one of my favorite fun things to make of all time. You only need a long needle and some ribbon, yes it’s that easy. Let me show you how to do it. This DIY one minute rose will provide hours of fun for bored kids on holidays. Since I found this little sewing project I keep a little stash of ribbon and some long needles to hand to the kids if they are getting tired, fidgety and irritable. I just pop out the ribbon and they all get to work and I don’t hear a peep for hours.
- Organza fabric ribbon (each section will be 1 1/2 foot long)
- A longe needle
- Hot Glue Gun
- Glue Sticks
- A Lighter
Take your threaded needle and begin to sew your ribbon strip as you gently fold it in half as you sew along using a loose straight stitch. You need it fairly loose because you will be pulling it taught to bunch up the petals in your beautiful flower.
Then repeat that stitch length to the end.
Then finish it by threading the end straight through the center and seal with the lighter and the glue gun.
Then add lovely leaves to your beautiful rose.
This is an amazing project, I highly recommend it.
