Liberty Fabric Flower Tutorial

02/08/2016


This pretty flower hairclip is an ideal project for using up those leftover scraps of luxury fabrics you just can't bear to throw away!

You will need:

A piece of Liberty cotton lawn fabric approx 30cm x 20cm
A small piece of felt
A small pin curl clip
Thread + needle


Step One

Cut out 6 circles in your chosen fabric (8cm diameter)
 

Step Two

 

Fold each circle in half and press.

Step Three

Thread a needle, match up the thread ends and tie a double knot. Then sew a small running stitch along the curved edge of the first piece of folded fabric.

Step Four

Pull up the thread then repeat step 3 on the other 5 pieces on one continuous thread, gathering each petal as it is finished. 

  

Step Five

When all 6 petals are gathered on, pull the thread tight and sew in the middle to bring the petals together and secure the thread.

Step Six

Chose a little vintage button and sew it to the centre of the flower

 

Step Seven

Sew a circle of felt to the back of the flower using a running stitch and then sew or glue a clip onto the felt
