I guess I am on a flower making spree! These flowers were also made using fabric found at FabMo. I thought that the coordinating pleated fabric added a nice texture and the center small pearl adds a nice shine. This pattern also uses a Sizzix Big Kick, but I used the “Fabric Layers #2” die. You can also cut out a similar flower by hand.

Here’s what you’ll need for the flower:
-Die Cutting Machine and Flower Die (Or scissors if you are going to be cutting out your own flowers by hand)
-Coordinating heavier weight fabrics or fabrics with stabilizer ironed onto the back of it for the flower itself
– Needle and Thread (or Sewing Machine)
-Bead or button for the middle of the flower
-Glue (if you are going to glue in the middle bead or button)
1) Cut out your flower petals.
2) Lay out your petals how you want them and sew them together. NOTE: On my machine, I chose a buttonhole stitch so that the stitch would just be right in the middle. You can also glue the fabric pieces together, but I think the sewing holds a little bit better on the fabric.
