01 Re­move each pre-cut piece from the felt. To make the poppy, take a small dark pink petal. Over­lap the cen­tre flap onto the right flap, then place the left flap on top to cre­ate a cupped base. Sew us­ing two strands of match­ing thread.

02 Re­peat Step 1 with the re­main­ing dark pink pe­tals – there should be three small, three medium and four large.

03 Tie a knot half­way along the green rec­tan­gle, then thread both ends through the slit in the green cen­tre piece.

04 Stitch the base of the pe­tals around the base of the cen­tre piece, start­ing with the small­est and work­ing out to the largest. Over­lap as you go to get an even shape, and avoid stitch­ing the green rec­tan­gle as this will at­tach the flower to the hoop.

05 Sew two green leaves to the base of the flower to fin­ish.

06 To make the pe­ony, re­peat Steps 1-2 with the pale pink pe­tals, and Step 3 with the pale pink rec­tan­gle. Re­peat Steps 4-5 to at­tach the pe­tals and leaves.

07 To make the anemone, re­peat Steps 1-2 with the peach pe­tals, then tie a knot half­way along the thinnest dark pink rec­tan­gle. Fold it in half along the length, then wrap the dark pink fil­a­ment strip around the knot as shown, po­si­tion­ing the top of the knot just be­low the top of the snipped fil­a­ments. Sew us­ing match­ing thread.

08 At­tach the pe­tals around the base of the cen­tre fil­a­ment as per Step 4, then add the leaves as per Step 5.

09 To at­tach the flow­ers to the hoop, over­lap the ends of each felt rec­tan­gle around the hoop and trim any ex­cess felt. Us­ing match­ing thread, sew the ends to­gether, as close to the hoop as pos­si­ble. You can use a dab of glue to se­cure them fur­ther.

10 Tie the length of rib­bon to the top of the hoop to hang.
