Satin Flowers Four Ways

Last week we shared some fantastic tips on how to have success sewing with satin. Have you given it a try yet?  I also promised that on Monday (that's today) I would be sharing a couple different methods for making satin flowers. The funny thing, though, is that once I got started making flowers, I just couldn't stop.  So today I am going to show you FOUR different ways to make flowers out of satin! I will walk you through step-by-step and you'll be making gorgeous satin flowers in no time.   


First up is the Ruffled Circle Flower! This is a really popular satin flower right now and my daughter has one in every color. My amazing friend and neighbor Summer helped me learn to perfect this style.  Trust me, she has made thousands of these ruffled circle flowers and she knows what she's doing. Now you will know all the secrets too!

The next two satin flowers are not as common as the first but they are definitely gorgeous and elegant.  The Singed Flower (white) and the Full Ruffled Flower (teal) are easier to make than they appear, and you'll be an expert in no time. 

And last up are the Rolled Flowers. These are my favorite to make!  They are similar to the rosette headband that we taught in the past here, but they are also quite different.  These satin rolled flowers are more "free" because they twist only around themselves rather than mounting onto a separate backing. This makes them great for hair clips and they're super quick to make. 

But that's enough talk about the tutorial - let's get to it!  You can download the free PDF here:
