Default Anyone know how to make rag flowers?

These are cute! I'd love to make these. I'm going to have to play around tomorrow if I can figure it out.

If these are yours they are very cute!

Awesome! Let us know how it goes. It looks like a rag rug.

It looks like you start with a felt flower cutout then start working from the center of each petal and work your way out.

That's kinda what I was thinking (as I was trying to fall asleep last night....pretty sad that I lay awake thinking of bows )

I'm going to try this weekend and will post back if they don't look horrible.

Thanks ladies!

Yep-that's it, only instead of gluing in place, she sews-not to hard, but time-consuming

There is a base that I use for hatmaking and now what it is called escapes me. They have it at JA's and it is heavily starched. Easy to take onto. Used by millners. I would used that then attach it to the felt base after.
These are real simple .. ripping, wrapping and twisting. I would suggest starting much smaller than her flower for starters. Let us know how it goes.

I have seen several replies that are correct. You rip 2 inch wide strips and roll or twist them. I tried a few but never liked the end result. Good Luck I can not wait to see.

Ok...here is my first attempt. I had some leftover Easter fabric scraps already cut into strips and so I made this butterfly
