Default Re: tutorial for this flower?

I folded it in half, pinned it to stay shut (on the open side of the fold of course), and then I cut slits on the folded side of the felt. I then sewed a running stitch along the open end (removing pins as you go of course)....I would sew a little then pull the thread to make the felt "curl" into a circle. Once it's the size of a circle you like, just cut the rest of the felt off and sew the "circle" shut. I repeated this step for all layers, gradually making them smaller. Once all were done I just put a thin layer of glue around the "hole" in the middle of the circle and stacked/glued them together. I had to tweak the very top a little by taking the small circle piece (with 3-4 slits) and I tucked it into the hole of the 2nd smallest layer (and added a few stitches to hold them together) just to round off the top. Hope this makes sense! LOL......oh yeah....I didn't do any "rolling" of the felt either?
I should also add that I cut a small circle of matching felt for a "base" to start assembling the flower on.
