Instructions for the rose can be found on the Purl Beeand here’s how I made the other.
Cut 7 small circles from felt, I used a penny as a template. This is a really useful type of marker, the other end is an “erase” tip so that if you are left with any marks after cutting out you can easily remove them.
Thread a needle with matching embroidery thread, fold a circle in half and insert the needle through both layers near one end.
String all of the circles onto the thread next to each other in the same way as the first. When all are threaded, bring the needle back around to the first and thread it through all of the circles again. Pull up tight, arranging petals neatly and stitching to securely fasten. Sew button to the front and kirby grip / bobby pin or barette to the back.
