Fabric Flowers

This is a must try! You just need some fabric scraps and some fabric glue. You start with a 1 1/2 inch wide strip of fabric. The length you choose will determine how big your flower will be.
First, tie a knot at the end of the fabric. Begin to twist the fabric as you roll it around the knot, adding glue as you go. You can either do loose twists or really tight twists. It just depends on the look you are going for and also the fabric you are using.
Twist and roll until you are left with enough fabric to cover the bottom. Glue the end of the fabric to the bottom of the flower. Trim the excess fabric.
Ta da! You can now add any final touches that you want. On a few of mine, I added leaves, while on the others I sewed on some beads in the middle.
