I agree, they are adorable! it seems to me that she made a running stitch along the bottom of the fabric and then pulled it a little to make it ruffly. Probably sewed each layer together and then attached the center. I hope that makes sense. I will try and test this out!

I know how to make the messy ones but I am HORRIBLE at explaining so let me see if I can find that pattern online and I will let you know. It actually involves little to no sewing.

just take a piece of cloth, in a shape of a rectangle, the longer the rectangle the bigger the flower will be and the more petals you will get. fold it half, you can make a straight stitch on the rough edge or on the smooth part where the fold is. than pull one end of the thread so it gathers up, when you pull the thread it should automatically spiral. than just spiral and add a button to the center. hope this makes sense, if you put the stitch on the smooth side where the fold is you will get the messy flower look.

this is how I do mine......

A very loose straight stitch.....

(here I am using 1 1/2 ribbon..but you would use fabric...of course if you want your fabric to look "messy" just pull some of the threads and you will see it become messy......it wil be not as bulky as a ribbon..

start sewing...it will start curling on its own...



I like to back stitch at the begining...and then at the end I leave a long piece of string to help gather the ribbon a bit more....I used 1 yd of ribbon for this..but I like to tug on it till I have 12 inches of a rufle....lolol..this is how you make ruffles for clothing too!



start gathering with your hand and turning it as tightly or loosely as you want it....
when you are comfortable with the size you want...i use a needle and start just stitching threw every layer of the ribbon/fabric...and just pull a bit as it gathers together..I like to make a couple of stitches to have a good hold on the whole thing....

Then just add a center...covered button.....

That looks easy enough! I may have to use all of these fabric scraps. I've been on a fence trying to decide what I am going to do with them.
