All you need is:

  • Some stiffened fabric pieces in different colors and prints
  • A pencil
  • A paper
  • Scissors
  • Needle
  • Thread
  • Buttons
  • And an iron

Step 1:

Press the creases with an iron. While each petal is still warm, roll the edges back to make a pretty petal shape. The fabric is very soft and pliable when it’s warm, but after it cools a couple seconds, it’s crisp again. If you’re unsatisfied with a petal, just iron it again and reshape it.

Step 4:
