Selvage Edge Scraps Spike Fabric Flower Tutorial

Since I make a lot of blankets, I have a ton of small selvage edge scrapsSelvage Edge Scraps Spike Fabric Flower craft idea tutorial brown and pink hair bow green I am always wondering what I can do you use them and not just throw them away. Its such a huge waste of money and resources. So I sat down and played with them and this is what I got. A cute fabric flower



Here are the instructions:

You will also need a needle and thread and a button.

Start stacking pieces of fabric onto the needle. You can shape them as you go or shape before you tie it off. Some of the larger pieces I twisted around and around on the needle to create flower petals.
