    Purple felt 30cm x 22cm (117?8in x 85?8in)
  • Sewing Thread
  • Flower sequins
  • Assorted bright ribbons
  • Silicone glue


1. To give you two rectangles 15cm x 22cm (6in x 85?8in), cut a felt rectangle in half across its length.

2. Choose a ribbon that co-ordinates with your felt and cut it so that it is approximately 30cm (117?8in) long.

3. Fold your felt rectangle in half Pin the sides together and hand-or machine-stitch the side seams.
