For my white slippers, I made a fabric flower different than my usual fabric flower method – instead of rolling a long piece of fabric like a cinnamon roll I layered pieces of fabric and then gathered the center back. Here’s a quick tutorial on How to Make a Layered Fabric Flower – -
First cut a couple of layers – I made mine in circles. My mom made my girls some flowerclips using this method and she cut the layers in the shape of flowers – I should have had her take a picture, but they looked like a circle with big scalloped edges. Then zig zag along the edge to prevent fraying (unless you want a shabby look, then you want fray).
Next fold the layer so you can find the middle. Then hand sew about 1/4 inch above the tip – see picture.
When it open it back up the back should look like this:
I did this to my layers separately, then hand-tacked them together and on to my slipper. I think my mom layered all her layers (she made 4, I made 2) and then folded it and gathered the middle, as a group. Here is a picture of hers:
This was really easy and turned out cute. Grab some scrap fabric and go make one!
