I will show you how to make a flower bouquet for Mother’s Day or for any day.'What crafty creations could you make today from YOUR craft stash?! #CraftRoomDestashChallenge'Click To Tweet
The first thing to do is gather up your knitting needles of different sizes. They can be double pointed or single pointed.
The next step is to select two fat quarters that coordinate. Do you collect fat quarters? I love getting them because they usually come in pretty colors and work great for small craft projects. Cut three pieces from each piece of fabric in 4-inch widths on the longest side.
Fold the fabric 2” in, wrong sides together. Insert a few pieces of stitch witchery on both ends and the middle. Iron and cut so both sides are equal. Or just measure 4” and cut, insert the stitch witchery fold wrong sides together and iron.
On the raw edge, run a gathering stitch. Pull the thread to make a gather and then curl it to form the flower. Holding it tight stitch the bottom so it does not come apart.
If you use the single pointed needle, insert it through the middle of the flower. To hide the top of the knitting needle, hot glue beads on the top. Use a wooden bead to secure the fabric on the knitting needle by hot gluing it.
It is the same concept for the double pointed needle except use a wooden bead on top along with the one on the bottom. Then decorate the top wooden bead by hot gluing a pretty bead on top.
Do you like how you can make a pretty bouquet for Mother’s Day? The flower can be stuck in a plant or placed in a vase.
And Mom will love her handcrafted flowers.
