I think anyone can make these, but it helps if you have some sewing experience. They take about 30 minutes to make depending on your skill level.
Step 1: Materials
- Sewing machine
- Needle and thread
- Fabric (scraps work great for this project!)
- Cardstock (or something sturdy)
- Buttons, beads, or anything you can think to use for the center of your flower
- Hair pin of your choice (consider the size that you want your flower when choosing!)
Step 2: Cut fabric
For a flower with two (or more) colours, cut additional squares for each petal that are slightly larger/smaller than the original squares you cut. The larger squares will be the outer colour and the smaller ones will be the inner colour.
I haven't tried, but I imagine you could use more or less petals. Experiment and see what you like best! Also mixing and matching colours, alternating fabrics, etc. can make interesting flowers!
Step 3: Make petals
Next, fold the lose corners up to the second fold you made (see photos 3 and 4). Align the edges so they are equal. You should have a triangle now (photo 5).
