How I made the Burlap flower

See I read all my comments LOL....

this is kind of a tutorial for the burlap flower I didn on my  Forgotten photo with great memories layout I did the other day...
Its really simple and I probably could have done it without the pictures but I'm kind of bored so bare with me...
this is what you will need...since I don't have a fancy cutting machine I cut everything with scissors (which aren't in the picture..lol)so you have1 pattern for a flower 1 circle piece of burlap(for the center)2 pieces of burlap 1 piece of netting or tulle a button for the center needle and thread...I stacked the netting and the 2 pieces of burlap.
 I pinned my pattern to the stacked burlap&netting

 then cut it out...no need to be precise....
 I stacked them alternating the petals...the netting in the middle then added the circle...just added a simple stitch to keep the layers together
sewed on the button,then pulled some of the frayed edges to make rugged....

I scrunched it up a but....when I added it to my other layout it was kind of flat so I added some foam sticky tabs under the petals(really close to the center) to make it pop up a bit....

I hope this makes sense to those that read it LOL
