Step 1

Trace and cut two identical circles out of a piece of felt. The circles will serve as the front and back of the brooch. Cut a tree-shaped piece of felt to fit as an accent on the front of the brooch.

Step 5

Lay the front and back pieces on top of each other. The pin and embellishments should be facing out and the blank pieces should be touching. Sew around the edges but leave 3/4-inch opening. Take a small amount of stuffing and gently work it in between the felt. TIP: Use a chopstick to help distribute the stuffing evenly throughout the felt pieces.

Close up the opening by securing with thread. There should not be any stuffing peeking out of the seams.
