Sew a fabric flower: The free Scarlett Flower tutorial

 Sew a fabric flower with netting by and Birdsong Patterns


It’s time to open the pattern vault once more…this time with a free pattern to sew a fabric flower and fascinator.

In January I wrote about the need to “focus” my Birdsong pattern shop a little more, and decided that instead of simply retiring patterns…

(….so that *poof*, they’d be gone….)

I’m slowly offering some of them here on the blog for free, for you to enjoy.

Because I appreciate that you’re here.

And I think that you’ll like this ultra-fancy and feminine flower.

Introducing: The Scarlett Flower.

You may download the Scarlett Flower PDF here. All you’ll need to open it is Adobe Acrobat, which can be downloaded from their website if you don’t already have it installed on your computer.

I hope you enjoy making this fabric flower as much as I enjoyed designing it.

Back in January I offered my free tutu tutorial on the blog, and I’ll ask for the same courtesy here that I asked when I released that pattern for free…

…to please remember…I still own the copyright to this fabric flower tutorial, so you may not sell it as your own, and you may not copy the text or photos from it. And if you have a friend who wants it, I ask that you please link back to my post here rather than sending them only the download link. Thanks for helping spread good kharma!

    Your flower is absolutely lovely! It caught my eye on Craft Gossip and I followed the link, because I had tried to make a wrist corsage for my son’s date last Saturday. This flower would have been perfect. Thanks for sharing!

    Your name (McCool) brought back some fond memories of my childhood. I attended McCool Elementary School in McCool, MD to many decades ago. Thanks for the time travel.

      Neat, Debra! My older daughter wanted to know more about it so I looked it up – she said she wants to visit, lol! :)
