Default Re: Best way to cut your fabric for singed flowers

Thanks, i'll give it a try.

Ps: I'm still going to order some from you though. I don't know if I have the patience for cutting fabric.

If you are doing a more natural flower and doing more petal like shapes, I do a similar method but fold my entire fabric until a smaller square/rectangle and cute several petals. You do have more waste though but I save my scraps for leaves and tiny circles.
