if u get a silky fabric, cut it into circles and with a candle or lighter singe the outside edges and do several layers it looks like a flower

Hey! Ive learnt how to make this kind of flowers with fabric in this way. You can use any kind of fabric I think. Its quite easy but the first attempt can be a muddle! Just try 2 or 3 times as a training before doing it for your project.

Take a long piece of fabric and sew a line near one of the edges. Youll need some fabric left so do not do it too close to the edge.



Then pull the thread and it will start to curl up. When youre happy with the flower (very open or maybe like a bud) get a knot and make some stitches to join the bottom of the flower. That could be messy! If youre tired of it just glue it! ^^



I hope it helps! Good luck!

There are lots of fabric flower tutorials around Craftster. Some of these might not be what you're looking for but I think some are.

at www.fabricdepot.com they used to sell a roses template maker perhaps you could email them if they still sell it ? I bought mine some years ago online.
