All this time I thought you were folding the fabric to make ONE flower...little did I know it was one PETAL! Gee I'm clueless.  Oh well, I made one, but it's pink and yellow with five petals.  I had to sew the petals together, one side of petal to the other side of another, to make them stay together.

Spillyjane, if you have time could you take a picture of the back of a petal when you sew it through?  I'm a visual learner and a little slow...

Yes, I agree, please. I have tried a few petals, but I'm not sure how to sew through it either. Mine seem to be more 3D, yours is more flat...   Thanks

OH yes, please someone post that.  I have made a flower that I'm pretty happy with, but I found the hardest thing was sewing the petals so that all the folds stay in place .  I'd love to see what the back of a finish flower should look like. Smiley

hee! thanks. of course, i've just learned the actual *traditional* way of folding rounded petals...ah crap. i guess my tutorial just shows and alternate folding technique...it still works after all.

How/where did you learn the traditional way?

SpillyJane

Do you know where I can find a book on "Making Material Flowers"? I just can't seem to find any. There are a lot on papermaking but I want to make the whole flower with individual pettles and maybe sew some beads on them or glue glitter or spray glitter.
Silk flowers are pretty but I like the complete flower (each pettle has two pieces or one that is folded llike the one you did).

My craft is felted wool penny rugs and finding heavy coat wool in pretty colors is a joke. I will have to wait until we go to San Francisco to get more wool....and it is expensive there.

This is a great forum. Thanks
