Pointed Petal Fabric Flower Tutorial

Follow my DIY tutorial to make a large pointed petal fabric flower.   I chose red fabric specifically to make a Christmas style fabric bow, but any color fabric would be fun.

I have been working with bias tape to make small fabric flowers with pointed petals and small fabric flowers with round petals.

To make this fabric flower I chose double fold quilt binding.  The quilt binding is just like bias tape except it is wider.

Materials Needed:  (Flower is 3.5" wide)

  • approx. 1.5yds Double Fold Quilt Binding
  • Coordinating Thread
  • Large Button, Gem, Bottle Cap

Instructions:

1. Begin by folding the quilt binding down to form a triangle.  Tuck the cut/frayed end into the triangle and whip-stitched closed.
