| | Re: ISO how to make this flower
I have really looked at the flower in the first link. I am a seamstress and I think I can see now what it is. At first I thought it was one of those flowers made of squares folded and put together but after looking at all the views I really think it is a strip of fabric cut on the bias. I see lots of seams and they are on angles which would be from joining fabric strips that are bias cut. And I think it is not gathered on one edge. I think it is folded back and forth and pinched rather than gathered and that is what gives it the unusual look. I'm going yo play around with it and see what I can come up with. It's really pretty.
