    I'm assuming this is done using the ribbon flowers directions. Just cut strips of fabric (rectangle), stitch sew one side of it, pull and gather the fabric, fabric glue to attach your ends and put in hidden gather. Obviously they did two different sized strips using a chiffon fabric. Pull on the edges and between your fingers to tatter. Not sure whats used for center but wire and beads works and adds bling. Hand tack all pieces together and then to wrist elastic and you got it.

    Look up the ribbon flowers. Just use two layers of the plain flower and cut your strips out of clothe. Very easy!
