    Wow! Those are beautiful! Do you think you could do a tutorial, or at least some hints?

    Where are the other two?

    Yes, very successful! They are both gorgeous and I would love a tute as well. Looks like a good pillow gift idea.

    Love the detail in the first two - they're gorgeous. The easier ones are pretty also but don't seem to give as much detail.

    I agree. Iusually can figure something out by looking but this one I need some help. If you can translate some of the instructions that would be awesome.

    Here the dhalia tutorial translate (Google!)without images:
    2008th Monday, 15 December

    Dahlia flower pattern folded step by step ...
    I created a new dahlia flowers, textiles, origami technique. Now do not forget the photos made while fulfilling this desire ... Enigma! : O)

    Then let's see: I'm trying not too much "tell" the images, much as was sent just think it is absolutely necessary ... Many people have already been produced this flower, it could be otherwise, I have my own version and now I share with you what I learned Ledanna blog, but I changed it a bit ...

    Dahlia flower step by step:

    Select from 7 different colors harmonized substantive. If you have the desired shade, then all colors are set for 15 * 15 cm squares, 8 pieces per color. The flower is sziromból 8, and a sziromhoz 7 types of material used. Thus, a total of 56db. 15 * 15 cm square is needed. This size to be poorly understood even a 35 * 35 cm base material, then you sew the petals.



    If the fund was handed the boxes and it is time to fold. We will check a box, félbehajtuk, körmünkkel "levasaljuk" the edges, then Fold it in half again, but opened the second drive back. This is in fact the folded halves sziromokat, and shows the way for straight sewing, but more on that later ...





    Összehajtogatjuk all the colors négyzeteinket, and whichever color you want to start with whichever color you want the center of the flowers, I put down in front of you folded, and ca. Ments can, leaving a 1 cm distance from the other colors ráfektetjük négyzetünket folded, so that any overlap between the hajtásvonalak.
    So we are both in the 8. For petal.



    Now we can fund it and drive it in half twice, and also átlóknál. Very good "levasaljuk" the edges, this is your finger, then széthajtuk, back to the full square.
    I do not really see in the picture, but if it can be seen on the drive, it will be the great lines of sewing!



    Handy for sewing! You do not mind ... already? : O)

    Lays the foundation, then one of hajtásvonalra, place half of the 7 négyzetünket driving, keep an eye on the cuttings to be exactly on each other, and folding of the fund is in line with that year. It is very important that the center can be accurately! Sew a straight stitch all 7 of the base material.





    The material is sewn along the seams Fold each other.



    Hajtásvonalára matched to the base next to the new 7-inch "material packs" and sew on the basis of the above.





    This material also packs Fold each other along the seam.


    ... And we come to the petals folding ...
    The center petal, the first drive mode is different from the others, this may be a two-step, while the rest is just a plain ráhajtásból.
    So ... always moving from left to right, then the petals will be pretty smooth.
    The first box átlójánál drives, levasaljuk finger, returned to the junction box and is driven by a third. Maybe it was a bit complicated to describe but the pictures will help! Seriously: harder to describe than to prepare! : O)

    The first petal harmadolása:

    Harmadolási The easiest way to get points so that félbehajtjuk the material, and formed a line after the purge, recover the material.




    ... Driving in the left box of the one-third ...



    ... Two-thirds ...




    Then bend to the fund, which will nicely covered.




    Repeat it on the right side.



    The second sziromrész also left to start the recovery. Varrásvonalig recover.
    ... And then the first bend sziromrészre. On the right side of the entrance in the same way, then it follows from the left in the third petal, and so on until you run out of small sziromrészek.







    Finished first in the flower petals! Felvarrhatjuk sziromrészeket the next .... and so on.



    If each of the 8 petals felvarrtuk behajtogattuk and we are done, the origami technique virágunkkal dahlia! : O)






    I hope I managed to deter the dahlia kapnotok megvarrásához!
    If I was not clear, sorry for it! : O) Of course, if you have any any questions, write, I try to answer it, thus helping you to many beautiful dahlia nyílhasson out! Good luck to everyone! : O)
