3. Starting in the back, using a needle and thread, sew the pedals together.
4. If desired, sew pearls/beads/gems into the center of the flower.
5. Cut and glue a small felt circle to the back of the flower. This helps keeps pedals "pushed" forward and gives a place to tack a clip.
6. Sew a clip to the felt on the back of the flower.
