I think where some people are having problems is during step five.  Be sure to fold the points up (like a paper airplane's wings) even with the top of the petal.  This will make a sharper angle on the point and create less bulk in the back.  The needle goes through all layers including the wings. 

Again, I am soooo impressed wth how unique and creative everyone's flowers are!  I love them!

I love these flowers! So far I have 25, plus some that I have already given away to my friends!! I'll post a picture later of some of my favourites. I think I'm going to sell them on my website too and have them on ribbons and as brooches.

I love how everyones looks so different:)

this is my take on fabric flower i did to give my mom as a part of gift:

I sewed safetypin to the back and glue down a piece of polar fleece to cover the rough edges.. it was fun to make and it is super easy!

That's gorgeous, I'll have to give it a try someday.

This tutorial is great! I've been trying to figure it out for a long time! I love all your flowers.. esp sushimifune's! The petals are so round and perfect! I have tried, but failed terribly. I'll try to post a pic of mine, and maybe someone can tell me what went wrong?

This is my first attempt, it's not perfect by any means but I'm pleased overall how it came out.  At first I couldn't figure out the second diagonal fold but eventually it all came together in my head.  Thanks so much for the tutorial and inspiration!

I love that you put a marble in the middle, that's a great idea!  My nieces already have a couple flower clips I made for them (they are just tiny flowers)  They would love it with a marble character in the middle.

Great tutorial, I'm sitting at work trying to figure out how to do it with a post it note...

The first thing I did when I saw this was reach for my note pad and I started folding...
