How-To Tuesday Fun Fabric Flowers

Here's a quick tutorial on how to make super cute and easy fabric flowers! The one's I've done here are made from scraps of t-shirt material. 

I had a lovely soft black t-shirt that somehow obtained a large bleach spot on it!!! So sad!  What to do?  Refashion, of course!!

First, I cut several different sizes of circles out of the t-shirt.

Next I gathered the circles in the middle, by pinching them, and stitching them into place. Like this:

So then I needed to decide what to do with them! I took a cute clearance rack t-shirt that I got for $3 at Wal-Mart, and pinned the the flowers onto the collar.

Then I hand stitched them into place!

Here's the finished shirt!  I think it turned out wonderfully!
The result is super cute and only took about 30 minutes from start to finish! You can also use these cute little flowers to make hair clips, pin-back corsages, or fun festive topiaries! You can use any kind of fabric, and get different results with each! Have fun!
