I am in the process of adding flowers and flower kits to my website and etsy page for purchasing, but I thought that it would be fun for you to see the process of the flower-making for those of you who would rather do it yourselves.
step #1: start with squares--the more squares, the fuller your flower will be. In this tutorial I am using 6 squares that measure 3 1/2 inches.
step #2: fold the square into quarters.
step #3: hold the folded end and cut the edge into a semi circle. It will look like an ice cream cone while it is folded.
This is what it will look like when you unfold it...
step #4: hand sew a circle in the middle of your scalloped square. I used dark thread in this example so you could see it easily. It doesn't have to be perfect.
step #5: pull your sewing tight and it will bunch up. tie a knot to secure it.
step #6: after doing this with all the pieces, sew them together by the little center bunchy parts:)
step #7: then pull it tight and it will start looking like a flower.
step #8: sew them all together and secure with a knot. You have your basic flower and you're ready to embellish it any way you choose!
step #9: sew on button details and hot glue felt and a brooch pin on the back. I used to hand sew the felt and clasp on, but recently have found that hot glue saves lots of time and energy.

I took these pictures. I made this stuff with my own two hands. I wrote these words. It's just a bunch of craziness, but it's what in this noggin. If you're going to use any of my stuff for your own stuff, just ask me. (I'm sure I'll say yes. I'm nice like that.) And a little linkie love never hurt anyone if you know what I'm sayin;)
