I've seen this somewhere, but I think I remember how it's made. You fold you fabric in half, and stitch for an inch or two, then place one stitch in the other edge before going back to the other. You would tighten your thread as you go along, and make as many petals as you want you flower to have. Diagram 1.
Taking a closer look at the pictured one though, I think she made four petals out of folded circles for the first layer, and just gathered fabric for the other two. Diagrams 2 & 3
