I worked on these small fabric flowers the other day. I am using bias tape. Bias tape comes in a variety of colors and I have had really good luck designing with it.
This style flower is real simple but I am working on some additional ones based on this tutorial but adding more petals, changing petal shape, and layering.
I hope you enjoy these flowers.
