Decorative Felt Flowers

I like doing crafts that I can pull out a box of supplies and make something useful and pretty in a short amount of time. I browsed the internet for something I could do with my stash of felt. I stopped at the Purl Bee, who has lots of cool ideas, and decided I really liked the felt flower charms that she made and the colors she chose. She also has a great tutorial and photos of various felt flowers that you can find here:  

I picked three colors that I liked together and stacked them,

then, just eyeballed the shape and cut the flower. I also pulled out some decorative flower buttons (found for $2 for a bag at a garage sale) for the center of the flower. 

Then with some needle and thread, I was finished in about 5 minutes.

I added it to a plain pillow.

The Purl Bee had lots of great ideas to use these for such as barrettes, a garland, or make a whole bunch of these and put them in a glass container for display. 
I'm going to do that one next!
