This pretty brooch is easier to make than it looks. Cheap flimsy felt actually works better than the sturdier thicker felts because it will gather up more easily.
Wait until you have made the flower before choosing the button. Or you can choose something totally different for the centre such as something pretty, rescued from an old broken piece of jewellery.
Of course you can also use this flower for other accessories. It would look lovely on a hair clip, hair band, as a wrist corsage, on a handbag or purse, or to decorate a wrapped gift or a gift bag
