As winter sets in and picking garden flowers for your hair becomes rare, adorn yourself with simple fabric flowers to make it feel like spring again. Experiment with different sized flowers and petal shapes and even mix and match the fabrics used in each petal, the garden grows no two flowers the same so why should you?!
1. Make yourself a 5 petal flower template. The size of your template will be the final size of your flower.
2. Fold your fabric in half wrong sides facing in.
3. Trace and cut 5 of your flower template on the double fabric.
4. Place a dot of glue in between the two layers of each flower to hold them together.
5. Place a dot of glue in the centre of the front of 4 of the petals and fold the petals in half.
6. With the remaining petal, place a dot of glue in the centre and pinch all the petals up together.
7. Start layering the 4 folded petals in a cross fashion (as pictured) securing with a dot of glue each time.
8. Place a dot of glue in the centre of the flower and place the fifth petal in, press down to squish it amongst the other petals.
1. Make yourself a leaf template.
2. Cut a piece of fabric sticker double the size of your template.
3. Trace the leaf onto one half of the fabric sticker.
4. Remove the backing and fold the fabric sticker in half so its now double sided.
5. Cut out your fabric sticker leaf.
6. Place a dot of glue at one end of the leaf and pinch the sides together at this end to give your leaf shape.
Affix your leaf (or leaves!) to the back of the flower with a bit of glue.
Attach your brooch back, hair pin or clip to the back of the flower.
Attach a cluster of flowers together onto a piece of fabric and sew or glue onto a necklace base.
