- Pattern if needed
- Create a pattern for your flower out of heavy card stock or just cut out a flower shape free hand. Cut several pieces and keep in mind they don’t have to be perfect or even symmetrical.
- Layer four or five on top of each other. Grab the center of ALL of them and twist. Using your needle and thread secure the point.
- Once secure you can add beads to the center of the flower. More pieces of fabric will create a full flower while only 2 or 3 will make your flower lay more flat.
- Decide how you want to attach your flowerete. You can use a needle and thread or repositionable glue.
