Okay, so I thought I was totally making the most unique thing ever until recently when I saw that everyone on the www is making these fabric flowers. However, if you may be someone who doesn't know, let me tell you. Cut out a paper pattern of a 5-petal flower about 3 inches wide (it doesn't have to be perfect). Then you can either pin it or just hold it on to the fabric you are going to use, and start cutting around it. The thicker the fabric, the fewer flowers you will need. For instance, the gingham flower pictured to the left has about 16 flowers, while a felt flower might take around 7 flowers. Now cut a 1 inch wide circle out of the same fabric. Get your hot glue gun ready. Take a flower cut-out and fold in half and then half again. Now, snip the bottom tip off of it. Put some hot glue on the bottom where you just cut and now stick it to the outside edge of your circle. Do that same thing with the other flowers until the outer edge of the circle is filled. Now just do the same thing and work your way around the inside of the circle, round and round, until you've filled it up with the folded flowers. Voila! A beautiful flower! You may hot glue a pin or a hairclip on it, or both to make it versatile. I'm giving one to all of the girls in my family for Christmas!
Here's your pattern. Very professional, right?
Just snip off the bottom.
I put a chocolate brown one on my daughter's coat.
