This is number 3, in my set of flower tutorials.
This is a fabric “Folded Petal” flower!

Good IdeasThis flower can be huge or small, worn in your hair,
on your necklace, on your wrist, or just about anywhere.
They are a really fluffy flower.Good IdeasI started our with four 2″ squares, and I cut them into wavy circles.Good IdeasBlurry Picture (sorry my camera is on the blitz)
After cutting the fabric into a wavy circle, then fold each one in half.Good IdeasThen fold it over again about mid-way.  But you see that dark crease at the end of my thumb??!!
I like to put a tiny dot of hot glue near the point, in that crease where you can’t see it.Good IdeasThis is what the wavy circle looks like folded twice.
Once in half, and then folded mid-way.Good IdeasI then had a sheer piece of white fabric that I cut in another wavy circle.
I put a small dab of hot glue on the backside of the blue petal,
then pressed it into the center of the sheer white fabric. 
You don’t want to glue it flat, because this is a fluffy flower,
not a flat one!!Good IdeasI continued gluing the petals around the center point of the sheer fabric.
The point of each petal touched.Good IdeasThis is what it looked like when all the petals were glued together.
You can add as many layers of petals as you would like. 
The more you add, the fuller your flower!Good IdeasThen I cut a few smaller wavy circles out of my sheer white fabric.
NOTE–I only used 4 blue petals, and 3 sheer white petals.Good IdeasI then glued the 3 folded sheer petals into the center of the blue petals.
