Sewing Spring: Bias Tape Flowers



I’m super excited to share with you how to make these fun bias tape flowers just in time for spring! With a little straight line sewing and a little hand sewing this is a perfect project for kids to make with a grown-up’s help or, of course, for an adult to make on their own!


I love a project that is not only colorful and scrap busting (at Hartford Stitch we amass a TON of scraps), but that is also great skill builder (and I love a good skill building project!). At the heart of this project we’re learning how to make bias tape which has so many applications from bags to quilts to garments and now… flowers!


If you want to follow along step-by-step with me, be sure to check out this tutorial video. I go into lots of detail about cutting fabric on the bias (the why and the how) and why I love the Oliso Smart Touch Iron for my students!





Ok, let's get started!
