Excellent tutoria!. 

At first, I thought the technique was similar to what I use, but it is actually rather different in some elements. This one seems to work much better in relation to sewing together, rather than gluing (which can be all too messy).

Can't wait to see people making these!

You are all vey welcome and thank you for all your nice comments.  I am glad so many people are trying out my instructions!  I was worried they would be hard to follow but so far, I have seen nothing but great flowers! No sad, flowerless crafters crying in frustation at my lack of ability to exlain clearly.

Thank you thank you!  I've wanted to try these ever since I saw pucchimaiko's first hairpin post.  For my petals I stopped at step 4 (i.e., I didn't fold up the wings) because I though it looked a little less crowded.  The fabric's vintage kimono silk scraps from Ah! Kimono.

Hi! I love your flower, I think it's so pretty : ) How though, did you get the rounded petals? I tried doing what you did, and only going through step four and it's not working. I might just be dumb >< Thank you!

what i can't believe is how easy it is to get such nice results... Smiley

here's my first attempt, just using scrap fabric i had laying around:


the diameter of this one is 2". 

for rounded petals just "flip" the petal you've folded over and use its back as its front.  this means that you'll have to fold to two raw-edged flaps under--use mountain folds as opposed to valley folds to reduce the amount of fabric.  well, that's the way i do it...  i can post pics if anyone needs further clarification.
