FELTING
1. Darn loose yarns away Do not sew pieces together yet.
2. Place in the washing machine with a pair of old jeans or towel (for agitation) and a colour catcher.
3. Set the machine for a 40 degree wash and a short spin.
4. When pieces come out of the washing machine  reshape while still damp.


5. Dry flat.

ASSEMBLY
1. The rose will naturally curl round to form a flower shape. Keep the purl side facing upwards.
2. Sew the flower together with matching sewing thread or fine yarn.
3. Sew the leaf to the back of the flower. Place it diagonally across, turning the rose right way round to see if you have the leaf in the right position.
4. Sew large brooch back or safety pin to the back if you want a corsage. alternatively sew onto item such as hat scarf etc.
