Stitched flower keyring Tutorial(I have used my sewing machine to make my flower keyrings, These are just as lovely hand sewn too)

Step One::: Print and cut out the Flower & flower centre template
Step two::: Trace around the flower & flower centre template onto your felt, cut it out.



Step three::: Position your felt flower at the top of two felt squares that are slightly larger than your flower. 
Cut a piece of ribbon (approx 4") fold in half to create a loop, sandwich in between the 2 square layers of felt and pin to the top of your flower leaving a loop at the top.



Step four::: Using your sewing machine or hand sew, stitch your flower to the felt squares. Sewing through all 3 layers of felt.


Step Five::: Pin the flower centre and sew into position


Step six:::Randomly sew some cute coordinating buttons around the flower centre


Step Severn::: Cut out your new gorgeous flower keyring leaving about a 2-3mm edge. Slip a split ring & keyring on and taaadaaa! attach it to your keys or bag and show it off with pride!
