Hexagon Fabric Flowers

I'm still playing around with the GO! Baby dies and had fun doing this quick little project making flowers. (Side note, if you want to enter to win a GO! Baby and 3 dies, enter here!) I used the hexagon die that cuts  2", 3" and 5" hexagons and used knit fabric to avoid fraying. I also put together a PDF template you can download here to use to cut out the hexagons. If you have trouble printing the PDF, go to File, then Download the file and then print it.

To make a flower just fold each corner to the center of the hexagon. I went in a clockwise direction around the whole hexagon. You can either hold them in place with your finger and then stitch it together at the end, or sew down the layers as you go. After all the "petals" are secured, just add a decorate button and you're finished!

I made a grouping of the three sizes. They're great for embellishing headbands, necklaces, shirts, and bags!
