Big bloom flower

I made my wall hanging 14 x 14 inches.

Next, I cut strips of fabric that were 2 3/4 inches wide and as long as the width of the fabric.
Then I made a basting stitch along one edge, about 1/4 inch away from the edge, to begin gathering the fabric. (Need help with gathering? Click here for more info.)
Then I placed my gathered ruffle in a circle on top of the wall hanging. Position just how you'd like it, taking note of how much of the square wall hanging you want to show from behind it. (And be sure to cover the first end with the circular shape, hiding the raw edge.)

Then place some hot glue right behind the gathered edge, securing the ruffle to the wall hanging.

Fold under and glue the very edge of your ruffle.....

.....and then glue the end down. Then gather your next piece and tuck under the end as well.

Then glue it right over the end of the first piece. But I still only glued at the base, by the gathers.

Then glue the gathered piece around in a circle, making each circle more and more narrow......moving towards the center of the flower.

When you finally reach the center, tuck the end edge under and glue the end of the strip in place.

Then fold the very end over in a diagonal line.....and then set aside for a moment while we make the center piece.

I just wrapped some scraps around my finger.....

.....and ruffled it up a bit.

And glued it to the center of the flower, using plenty of glue underneath.
