Fasten off, making sure to cut the strand of yarn at about 30cm {You'll need it later on}.
To form your flower, lay your long strip of petals down in a circle, working your way in.
Then, taking your tapestry needle, start sewing the flower together using the 30cm strand of yarn you leftover before.
Once you've sewed your flower together, sew the flower onto your hat.
Fasten off, and weave in loose ends.
