First you will need to grab a strip of fabric, I cut a tiny bit into the fabric and then rip the rest of the way to make it fray a little. The size of the flower will depend on the width and length of your strip.My strip is about 3cm wide and about 60cm long. Along with your strip of fabric You will also need a pair of scissors a needle and cotton and a button. Thread your needle and put a knot in the other end :) Now we sew a running or gather ( not sure of the term) stitch along the bottom edge of your strip of riped fabric.
Once you have reached the end of your fabric pull the cotton so the fabric gathers up.
OK now leaving the needle and cotton attached we twist it around and shape it into a flower.
Turn your flower over and push the needle and cotton through all layers of fabric going back and forth until sewn together.
Once this is done turn it back over and sew your button to the middle of the flower, stitching through all layers and
"Hay presto" You have just made your very own Shabby fabric flower!
You could use it to embellish just about anything.. I have sewn a brooch pin back on some of mine and pinned them all over the place ;)
