Simple Flower

Cut your shapes for the simple flower. Once you have selected a pattern, you will need to cut many of the same shape in a variety of sizes.

Layer Them On

Starting with the larger petals, layer them from large to small until you reach the top and your desired thickness. Then cut a quarter-sized circular piece of felt.

Stitch It Up

With the needle and thread, stitch the center of the flower to the center of the felt circular base.

Add the Button

Sew a button to the center of your flower.

Pin it Up

Cut a small rectangular piece of felt and whip stitch it onto the back of the felt leaving the shorter sides open. Slide a bobby pin inside to attach the flower to the hair.
