With T-shirt yarn you can make beautiful flowers in an easy way, like the gray flower with the butterfly button in the cover photo. One technique includes a loom, but today we are going to show you how to make T-shirt yarn flowers using fabric strips, a button and glue.
Fabric flower with a button
With this technique you can make T-shirt yarn flowers with one, two or more layers with knots.
Start by cutting various fabric strips of the same length, as many as you want for the flower; you must include all the petals for each layer (see image below).
For example, to make this grey flower you must cut 18 fabric strips of 17 cm length.
Then, you have to make a simple knot in the center of each fabric strip.
Fold in half each strip and glue them to form the petals. Repeat with each petal until finish the flower, make as many layers as you want.
To finish the flower put a button -or another ornament- in the center.
