Here’s another way to make fabric flowers. This type is more of a spiral looking flower, and it’s perfect for fabric scraps and fabrics with rough edges- that adds to the shabby/chic look. Once you get a couple done you’ll realize they’re pretty easy. They just take a little practice at first so don’t give up.
Start by making a knot at the end of your fabric.
Then twist (lightly- so maybe 1 twist at a time) and wrap the fabric around the knot. Keep twisting and wrapping the fabric around itself until the flower is the size you want.
Cut the fabric with 1-2 inches from the edge of the flower.
Gently turn the flower upside down and place on a table. Pour a good amount of glue all over the back of the flower to hold it together, then spread the end of the fabric out and place it on top of the glue.

For a hair bow, attach the barrette to the back. For other crafts you’re ready to go!
