Sew center first, then outside edge to hold firmly to fabric.
Although a pretty design and idea, this flower was applied on its wrong side to the garment. There is a right and wrong side in crochet.
The right side is the side you like best unless otherwise specified. I prefer the more finished look as shown here, as opposed to the “keep crocheting” side. Just my personal opinion.
