I make these out of ribbon mainly and not fabric, so I am not sure my advice will help, but here is what I think may be happening. Either, when you thread it on the needle to tie the petals together, they are getting pulled and twisted at that moment. I would suggest perhaps making sure that they seem straight and lined up before you tie that knot.

Or, as you are glueing the rhinestone on, some twisting is happening. I tie mine off, shape the petals to my liking and then put the rhinestone on as straight as I can with no twisting. I have had them twist on me at that point in time, so that is why I am aware of it.

See if any of that helps.

I think you may need to add at least one more petal. I use 6-8 petals on mine and they seem to sit well.

i think you might be tying it too tight.
