To make a flower, you will need six petals.
Shape the silk flower
Once your petals are cut, you need to shape them. To do this, fold each petal on itself a first time, then a second time. You will get a kind of cone while volume. Sew this folding on your loom, and repeat the operation with the other petals by sewing them all in the same place, in the center of the flower. As you sew, you will see the shape of the flower appear. Sew a sequin in a matching color or not in the center of the flower. Finally cut out your flower at its base to detach it from the loom.
