Default How to make ribbon flower

Ok Ive seen this flower made out of what looks like 1.5-2" grosgrain ribbon. IT has 5 petals that are round not pointed like the tuts on here. Anyone have any ideas on how to make them. Here is a pic of one, NOT MY PIC borrowed just to show.

TIA

The flower is made of brown fabric, not grosgrain ribbon. To make the rounded flower, instead of circles, cut your fabric in squares. HTH.

well in her description she says "grosgrain fabric flower" I think it looks like ribbon...I think maybe she stiched the corners and along the bottom edge and scrunched it together...ill have to try and see.

ok I tried what I said but it didnt work...I tried stitching down each SIDE of the ribbon (on both sides) and it brought it together but it didnt make the loops right..I dont have the right size ribbon for that though

I did see where it said fabric, but it does look like grosgrain ribbon to me too. Wow where do they sell 4" grosgrain. Shows how much I know, I didnt think it came bigger than 2".
