Start by making larger ones and get progressively smaller. Not too small, though. For a large flower, you will need about 15 petals. Begin stacking them as shown.
Here’s what it looks like when they are all stacked.
Now get a needle and thread and pull the first stitch through the middle.
Stitch a small ‘x’ so everything is in place well.
Now that everything is secure, we are just going to form the flower more. I fold it in half and stitch it through.
Then after that I fold in half again and make another stitch through.
Here’s what it looks like after those steps.
After that, tie it off in the back.
You can add to it whatever you want to attach it. You can buy pins and glue it on, you can use a safety pin, a barette, whatever you want. You can also add fun things to the center like a pearl, a diamond, a fabric center, a button- anything!
Here’s the pink one I did.
I really like the fabric I used for the white one because it has a texture to it that reminds me of real petals.
What do you plan on doing with them??
