Here's a simple little tutorial on how to make fabric roses.
Cut a variety of different sized circles from a nylon based fabric
Chiffon, satin, tulle and organza work best.
You need to make sure that your fabric does not contain any cotton or it will burn and catch on fire. This is very important as it can be dangerous.
Use a small lit tea light candle and hold the edge of your fabric circle just above the flame until it starts to melt and continue to melt all the way around your petal.
