A t-shirt or a piece of knit or jersey fabric approximately 15 inches long.
A sewing machine or a needle and thread to make a single stitch down the center of thematerial. Both work fine, a sewing machine is just faster.
Thread ( I like to use the duel duty plus HEAVY thread, or button thread that is sturdierand less likely to break)
A ruler or measuring tape and scissors
A piece of chalk or fabric pen (not necessary if you just want to eye ball your cut)
Hot glue gun with glue sticks works best, but fabric glue or a needle and thread may besubstituted (with a needle and thread you will need to sew the spiraled layers togetherwhen glue is called for and this method is not depicted with pictures).
Small piece of felt or fabric for the back of the flower to make it easier to attach to aclip, headband, or whatever you might be using it for.
