Sewing Level:  EASY
(may need some experience with
small blanket stitches)

TIP: This felt project requires cutting out small petal-shaped pieces. I recommend using sharp quality scissors

To make ONE earring, you will need two yellow pieces and 1 purple piece. After you have all of your pieces cut out, begin by sewing one purple piece onto one of the yellow pieces (use white thread, or a thread colour of your choice) as shown below.

Arrange 5 blue petal-shaped pieces as shown below and stitch in place.

TIP: You can use small dots of hot glue to help keep the felt pieces in place while stitching. 

Arrange 5 pink petal-shaped pieces on top of the blue pieces as shown below and stitch in place.

Stack the stitched layer on top of the second yellow piece and sew the pieces together at the centre.

Using yellow thread, start sewing the pieces together along the outside. After starting a stitch or two, sew in an 8-9 mm sized jump ring and then continue sewing along the outer edge of the pieces until you reach the start.

Repeat the above steps for the second earring. After your two earring pieces are complete, attach fishhook earwires to the sewed-in jump ring using a smaller jump ring (about 6mm in size).
