Folded Petal Flower

A folded petal flower, I am always looking for adornments for my projects, so I designed this flower for future use on things. It can be added to bags, hats, scarfs etc. many items that may just need that little something to finish it off.

Your work will appear frilled at this stage, but will fold in place in the finishing section.
