I made this flower hairpiece for my friend to wear in her wedding Smiley It's a heavier weight satin-like material that I cut by hand (seven layers) and singed using a lit candle (if you do this, I *highly* suggest wearing sunglasses!). I sewed the layers together, glued on the fancy rhinestone center and glued the alligator hairclip to the back. She ended up going with a different rhinestone center, but this is a pic of the original I sent her while we were in the proof process.

This is stunning! So seven layers but how many petals? I can never get my petals to line up as beautifully as you have!

Thank you! Smiley Instead of cutting individual petals, I cut seven circles of fabric and trimmed four petal shapes on each one, if that makes sense. So one piece of fabric has four petals. I'll try to post a pic soon explaining the process -- that may be easier!
