Things you’ll need
Polyester fabric (If you don’t have fabric, you can use satin, chiffon, acetate lining, polyester lace… instead)
Needle and thread
Step 1: Cut 6 petals of each of the four different sizes using this pattern
Step 2: Carefully sear and curl the edges of each petal by holding them over a lit candle. Rotate the one at a time.
Step 3: Thread your needle, then curl one of the smallest petals along its wider side. Sew it along the bottom to secure it.
Step 4: Continue curling petals around your first petal, overlapping them slightly and securing them by stitching them along the bottom.

If you want to make a peony, you can gather the petals slightly as you want. Make the center of the peony lower, and raise the petals as you go.
You also make a cabbage rose with this petals. Don’t gather the petals. Make the center of the rose higher and the rest of the rose lower.
