Instructions

1. Measure the mirror width, adding on 4cm, and twice the length, adding 4cm, and cut from felt.

2. Draw eight 2cm long petals on the paper backing of a piece of bonding web. Press to the wrong side of some pretty patterned cotton fabric.

3. Cut out the petals, then peel off the papers. Arrange the petals on one half of the case, using five petals to form a flower. Press the petals to the felt. Sew a small bead at the flower centre.
