Take your fabric and cut out a 5 petal flower.

Use your sewing machine with matching thread and sew around all the edges (this is optional).

Use your scissors or a hole punch to punch a hole into the middle of the flower.

Take your jewelry wire and cut 5 1 inch (2.5 cm) lengths.

Thread the seed beads onto each length and push through the center hole in the flower. Push through some feathers for a decorative effect.

Bend the wires securely at the back of the flower.

Cover the wires with a small piece of felt or scrap fabric.
