You will need

  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • Felt
  • A needle and thread
  • A hot glue gun
  • Throw pillows
  • A brooch
  • Hair clip

Step 1 Make template Make a petal template out of the paper by cutting a piece 1-inch tall by ½-inch wide that tapers to a point at one end.

Step 2 Cut petals Use the template to cut four petals from the felt. Arrange them in a row.

Step 3 Sew together Thread the needle and sew the bottom points of the petals together with a running stitch, putting two stitches in each. They should still be in a row, connected by the thread.

Step 4 Gather Gather the petals together to form a flower shape by lightly pulling the thread. Add one stitch to secure the first petal to the last, knot the thread, and trim.

Step 5 Repeat Repeat, making more flowers in various sizes and colors.

Step 6 Attach to a pillow Attach several flowers to a throw pillow using a basting stitch.
