Making Flowers with Fabric & Burlap (Tutorial)

Making Flowers with Fabric and Burlap. An easy tutorial!
 
I love bright and colorful things. They make me Happy. : )
Spring is all about color, love, happiness and flowers.
And when You put them all together. You Get Colorful Burlap and Fabric Flowers.
 
 
 
 
In my excitement for Spring, I made flowers. Defined petals made with Burlap and Fabric in different colors.
They are perfect for a quick wreath makeover.
 

Making Flowers with Burlap and Fabric

 
 
These are the simplest and easiest flowers ever. You can make them in very little time.
Using these flowers I refashioned a set of old frames into Spring Burlap Frames. You can find them HERE.
 
To make these
You Will Need:
 
 
  • Burlap (available here) and Fabric (of your choice)
  • Sewing Machine
  • Scissors and glue
 
Make It:
 
Simply start by cutting strips of burlap and fabric.
About 2 inches in width. And an approximate length (depending upon the size of the flower you want).
Mine were random lengths from 12 to 30 centimeter.
 
(1) Fold the 2″ wide strips into half and press if required. Then stitch and over-lock.
I really found over-locking the burlap strips, after stitching; a very neat idea. As it gives a very finished look to burlap flowers. And no hanging strings.

 

 
(2,3) Cut the strip using scissors at every 1/2″ interval. This will give the petals look of the final flower.
 
(4-6) Make a small bud (by rolling a small piece of burlap) and start rolling the strip on the bud. Glue at the start and the end.
 
 
Keep folding around the bud and glue to seal the end.
 
 
When You are done. You will get burlap flowers that look like this:
 
 
 
 
 
You can make colorful blossoms for spring also. Use fabric and follow the tutorial above!
 
 
Combine Burlap and Fabric flowers together, they look wonderful.
 
 
Beautiful and Colorful.
 
 
 
I simply adore different colored handmade flowers put together.
They look so spring-like.
 
 
These flowers can easily be made using left over fabric scraps as well.
 
 
 
This post is getting photo heavy. But they all look so nice I could not choose less.
 
 
What do you think?
 How would you like to use these flowers in your projects?
I would love to read your ideas!
 
 
You can find the Spring Wall Art using these flowers HERE.
I made it for my parents bedroom.

  3. These are great. They look wonderful and seem to be easy as well. But,

    What does “Make a small bud” mean? Can you be more specific – or have you posted what that means elsewhere? This is my first visit to your blog.
