Frayed Fabric Flower Corsage Tutorial

Say that 5 times fast!

I made this frayed fabric flower cosage for a friend's birthday and I remembered to take pictures along the way. So on with the tutorial!

5-7 coordinating pieces of scrap fabric
sewing machine
buttons or beads
fabric glue

Step 1:
Cut 5-7 circles from your fabrics. Make each one smaller than the last.  They don't have to be perfect.
Step 2
Sew each circle on top of the next larger one. Leave a large spacte between the edge and the stitching so the thread will be hidden by the circle on top of it. Do not sew on the smallest circle.
Step 3
 Once all but the smallest circle are sewn together place the smallest circle on the top and the ribbon (long enough to tie a bow around your wrist) on the back.  Pin it both on.
Step 4
Sew 2 zig zag lines to the left and right of the center of the ribbon.
Step 5
Clip the edges of all of the circles. (Like a rag quilt).
Step 6
Wash and dry your corsage.

Step 7
Use fabric glue and adhere buttons or beads to the center of your flower.  Then have your 4 year old son model it while you take pictures.
Voila!  A fun and springy accessory.
Look for these soon in my Etsy shop Made on Fifth Street and while you're there be sure to enter my giveaway!
