What we need:

* 7pc fabric squares.

* Needle and thread

* Fabric covered button

* Alligator clips

* Fabric stiffener

 

1. We use 3.5" squares in this tutorial, you can use larger or smaller one to make different size flowers. The larger size is easier for the beginner. 1 petal each square. A flower can be 5, 6, 7 or 8 petals. So if you have 1 yard 44-45" fabric and cut to 3" squares, you can make 24 flowers.
