This is a simple photo tutorial for a cute little flower that you can use for an adorable embellishment. Its petals curl up and inward, giving it a little dimension.
For this photo tutorial, I’m using Caron Simply Soft. I’ve upped the contrast of the photos so that you can see the details better.
5 Petal Curled Edge Flower
Start with a Magic Circle; SC 10 in the circle. Join with Slip Stitch into first SC and pull center tight to close the gap.
ROUND 1: *Slip Stitch into next SC. In same stitch, ch2, 3DC, 1HDC, ch1. Slip stitch into next SC* around.
ROUND 2: *Slip Stitch to first SC of magic circle. SC into Ch space of first petal. 2HDC each of the next 4 stitches. Ch1. Slip Stitch to next SC of magic circle.* Do this 5 times total. Fasten off; weave ends into back of flower. Finish with embellishment, if desired. For my flower’s center, I used a small embellishment brad that I found at my local craft store. You can also find them on Amazon. Just slip it through, bend the bendy things back (yep, I think that’s the technical name) and you have yourself a cute little flower!
