Folded Fabric Flowers Make Beautiful Ornaments
They Can Also be Used in Quilting Projects!
Folded fabric hexagons make lovely ornaments for the tree. Choose fabrics in colors you love and simply add hanging cords.
They’re also great for decorating wrapped gifts. Or, sew them into quilting projects for a bit of 3D wow.
It may take a bit to work through folding the first one. Once you’ve got the folding down you can create an ornament in just a few minutes.

The folds are secured with a few stitches. Then add a button or other pretty to hide the center.

Lisa from A Spoonful of Sugar started with a 6″ hexagon, which produced an ornament that’s 2″ from tip to tip (hers are the beautiful white ornaments). You can make any size you want by adjusting the size of the starting hexie.
