This is wonderful! I bought a template that gives me the sharp edged petals and I wanted something prettier and rounder, thank you so much!!!! 
I apologize if this has been asked but where do you typically buy your fabric? Online or a local source? I have Asian markets around me but I never noticed fabric, or Japantown in San Fran may be a source but it'd be an ordeal to go there and have money to buy fabric -_- 
again apologies if this was answered somewhere and thanks again for the tutorial! I know it takes work to make these when you could be making more Kanzashi!

This is great! I'm a little confused about the shaping options though. You have them listed and you say what they make, but I don't understand how to actually complete those options from what you have there. Could you explain a little better?

The rounded pointy petal one confuses me. When I fold it as instructed, instead of getting a nice 'rounded' petal on the back end, I have the raw edges--which are neither petaled nor round. What did I miss? :( I managed to get the first two to work. I think I'm missing something on the third.

I think this is a great tutorial, though I'm a little confused about petal shaping in part A. Which sections are you readjusting when you get those different shapes? I'm trying to get a petal with little depth like the one in option 3, but it ends up too tall.
