These fabric boutonnières come together in three steps, so you can give someone a whole bouquet, or pin one on everybody at brunch. Cut the shapes out of cotton-shirting material, and sew them onto felt backing.

How to do it

Part 1

Step 1

Download and print the Petals template. Use template to trace and cut 16 petals out of fabric. Layer them in a stack in an asterisk or flower shape. Stitch floss through center of petals—front to back, then back through. Repeat with a new strand of floss to make a cross. Knot ends of the two strands together.
