Printing and cutting the pattern

Print it on A4 paper and cut-out the pieces of the project.
Make sure that the pattern is not resized by checking your print settings. You can check if it was printed properly by measuring the test box on the pattern to ensure that its sides are 5cm long.
Print on thick paper to make it easier to trace the shape on the leather. 200g/cm2 and above is ideal (as long as your printer can handle it)

Tracing the outline of the pattern onto the leather

Use an awl to trace around the 3 petal patterns on your piece of leather.
Don't forget to mark the position of the stitches.

Dying the petals (optional)

If you want to dye your pieces, this would be the right time to do so.
I chose to go with a very light touch of white. I wanted to keep the natural color of the veg tanned leather visible especially as it will age quite nicely.

Cutting-out the petal-crowns

Cut the outline of each petals on the three pieces.
I usually like to cut all the edges going in one direction, then cutting consecutively all the opposite edges.

Burnishing the edges and smoothing out the rough side


Here I use some Tokonole to burnish the edges and give a sleek texture to the rough side.

Stitching the three petal-crowns together

Start by perforating the leather with your awl to prepare for the stitches.




Then stitch all around the circle with a saddle stitch, passing through the three crowns every time.

Water-forming the flower 

Submerge the flower in water and let it soak for a good 10 minutes.
Then close down the petals one crown after another, starting by the smallest one in the center.
Use a piece of thread or cord to secure the flower thus closed. No need to wrap it around too tight, if you do the edges of the petals might leave undesired marks on the opposite petals they are pressed on.
Let it dry overnight or until it has partially dried up but is still damp enough to be reshaped. At that point open up the petals to give the flower a shape to your liking.
Then let it completely dry (about 24h depending the heat and humidity).

Finishing touches

Finally I am applying some leather finishing product with a brush in order to protect the pigment of the dye.

Final result

I hope you had fun making this project. I plan on adding another crown to make the flower look a bit more interesting so I'll post the updated pattern once I get to doing it.
