The Burnt Edges Criss-Cross Flower
Cut out oval-shaped petals in descending size. Cut 2 of the larger ones. I have 11 total here.
Burn the edges of each of your petals.
Nest the petals on top of each starting with the first 2 largest petals. Arrange them in an X, and then take the second 2 largest, and arrange them on top in another X, that balances the first set of petals. Repeat this until you’ve arranged all the petals. *Note I ended up using only 9 of my 11 petals.
With matching thread, knot on the bottom and make several whip stitches through the center to secure all the petals.
You’re done. So pretty and delicate!
I bought this fabric flower pin in Argentina, and it was made by this same method.
And that’s where I got the idea for this satin fabric flower on my wedding dress that was made the same way.
