First take the shirt and cut out arectangle piece i measured the length to me 12inches. the width depends on how thick you want it.
Now cut 3 strips and stretch them out by grabbing the ends with both your hand and rotating the strip while gently pulling. This will make the shirt pieces look like string.
grab all three shirt strings and knot the end. From here start a braid
Don't braid all the way leave at least 3 to 2 1/2 inches at the end. Glue the string together at the end of the to secure the braid
Taking one of the string end roll it towards the braid. Glue it securely.
Taking the other piece next to it wrap around the center clockwise, gluing where you think it will need it. when u get to the end tuck it under and glue. Take the last string and wrap it around counter-clockwise. Glue the same way. When your done it should look like a rose bud.
Put that to the side and take cardstock paper ,draw 1-2 leaves depends on your liking,After you color it in take fabric paint and make the leaves veins like so. Leave a couple minutes to dry it shouldn't take long.
Cut out the leaves and glue them to the back of the rose bud.
