What you'll need:felt - in a flower color and a leaf color, pretty button,thread,needle,scissors,pinback
Using a simple flower template like the one above, cut out your three flower shapes and your leaf shape from your felt.
Using the tip of your scissors, snip a small "x" in the center of the smallest flower piece. Cut small circles in the center of the remaining two flower pieces. You'll want to make the hole smaller than the size of the button you're using for the center.
Add some decorative stitching to the flower petals (optional).
Sew a pinback to the back side of your leaf shape.
Turn the leaf rightside up and stack your flower shapes on top of it. Alternate the position of the petals as you stack so they look nice and full. Sew the button on securely.
Make a knot and tie off your thread, snip the tail and proudly wear your new brooch.
Do different colors, make them your own through little touches that are uniquely "you". By using felted garment wool and vintage or reclaimed buttons, you'll be making them more eco-friendly too.
