30+ DIY Fabric Flower Tutorials

I have a lot of fabric scraps.  I mean, a LOT.  I have a hard time throwing them away because there just *might*  be a reason to use them.  (Same for throwing away old clothing…because I just might find something to turn it into. Ack. Seriously…it’s a problem.)  Sometimes I buy the prettiest fabric for a project that I just love…and after using it, I just can’t bare to get rid of the extra scraps.  Surely I can find a use for them, right?  Or maybe I have some scraps of the perfect hue of blue, that just I might need for an applique of some sort.  Who knows — but I better keep it! :)

Something that I love turning old fabric scraps into…..is flowers.  Because flowers can be added to anything — shirts, totes, belts, gift wrapping, wreaths, headbands, etc.

So, in case any of you have the same problem of keeping little fabric scraps…..there’s a way to trim down the collection a bit.

Turn them into Fabric Flowers!!!

    Which flower would you suggest I use on a quilt? Not sure which one will hold up the best.

    I couldn’t get the link for “DIY No-Sew Fabric Flower via Ruffles and Stuff” to work. It’s the leather headband with the white flower with beaded center. Any ideas? Thanks!

      Never mind; I found the link: https://www.rufflesandstuff.com/2011/05/no-sew-fabric-flower-tutorial.html I was hoping she’d have a tutorial for that gorgeous beaded center :/

    I have a ton of scrap fabric too, thank you for the ideas! I think these would be cute as added decoration on the walls of a baby girl’s room or even as magnets!

  5. Shannon C. says:

    Thank you for the link love!!! (and for the AMAZING list!)

  6. Donna says:

    How do these flowers hold up to being washed? Can you put any of them onto a quilt that will be washed? I ask because I’m looking for some way to put some flowers onto a quilt that I’m making for a little blind boy so he can feel them! I’d sure appreciate any advice! :c)

    1. Ashley says:

      I think it depends on which one you’re using. But even then, whatever is not sewn down, will probably flap on the edges and fold different ways in the wash. I think it would be a cute idea to add them but just sew around the edges to tack them down. So, I would personally skip the ones with the frayed edges…..but you could always make some of the other varieties you’re interested in, sew them to some scrap fabric, wash it, and see what it does. It’s worth a try! But good luck…..what a great idea to add some texture to his blanket! :)
