This week's finish is a great project because it's so versatile. You can seriously put these on shirts, bags, headbands, and even magnets! AND they are easy-peasy. Introducing: The Twisted Fabric Flower! You can find some different techniques on the fabric flower tutorial here, here, and here.

Basically you need:

  • a hot glue gun (and glue!)
  • a piece of felt for the back- or any other material
  • strips of fabric- I used my leftover scraps from my car seat canopy
Now, there are a bunch of ways to make these flowers, but I chose to tie a knot at the end of my fabric and glue it down to the felt. Then I twisted the fabric and glued it periodically to the felt to keep it secure. When the flower was the size I wanted, I just rolled the rest to the back and covered the felt piece.

{I made each of them a little different. This one got leaves!}

{this one became a magnet- notice the sweet picture of my little girl!}

{and this one turned into a clip}

Seriously SO easy. Now get crafting! And let me know how your flowers turn out!


  1. these turned out so cute. i think i'm going to have to attempt to make some! i'll probably be calling you for assistance :)

  2. so i want one of these... but I wish I had a little girl to put it on an adorable headband like Avery's! It is SO cute! But I love the magnet idea!

  3. Dang. I was going to ask you if you wanted to come make some of these with me. Been wanting to give them a try.
