Supplies you will need:

Felt-One for front, one for back
and one for flower pot. I used
stick-on felt.
Ribbon
3 Flower buttons

Cut one piece of felt 5′ x 9′. Fold in half (long ways) and gently iron a crease in the middle.

Sew rick rack onto edges. Sew the 2 – 5′ inch edges first, then the 2 – 9′ inch edges. Fold over 1/2′ inch of rick rack on other side of felt when sewing so you don’t have a raw edge of rick rack showing on the end. When sewing the 5′ inch edges, place one ribbon in the middle of the edge extending about 1′ inch on the back side. You will sew this to the edge while you are sewing on the rick rack. This will be the tie.

It will look like this when finished.

Next, cut out the flower pieces. For the flower stems you will cut 2 strips 1/4 by 2′ inches long, and 1 strip 1/4 by 2 1/2′ long.

Center the pieces the way you want them on the front. If you are not using the stick on felt, use a glue stick to hold the pieces in place, then use embroidery thread to sew them in place, or you can fuse them on.

Cut one piece of felt 4′ x 7′. This will be placed inside. (on other side of felt) Fold in half and gently iron.

There are several ways you can apply this. You can use the stick on felt like I did, you can fuse it on or simply glue it on.

See how the edges of the ribbon extend about 1′ inch…this is so the 4′ x 7′ inch felt piece will cover up the raw ends.

I found this thread in my sewing box, I wish I knew how old it was!

Apply the buttons for your flowers. I do this last since it makes it bulky to work with. You can also add buttons the shape of flowers.
