Little felt flower accents

I am all about simplicity.  So when I tell you that these flowers are simple and quick to make, you can believe it. 

(I apologize in advance for the terrible lighting in the pictures.)

What you will need for this project :

6 felt circles (they need to be the same size, but you can choose the size, I happen to like the one inch ones.)

matching thread, needle, scissors

(pin back, hair clips or whatever you want to attach it to.)

Next, with your threaded needle, take one circle and fold the ends together.

Sew through both sides, close to the end.  I sew through two times for reinforcement.

Now repeat this with the rest of your circles.

Now once you have all your petals sewn.  Take your thread and run it through all of them.

You can sew through it once or twice.  Then spread it into a circle.  Finish it with a knot.

Now your flower is finished.  Easy.  You can add it to item of your choice.  These look really cute clustered together as well.
