how to make felt flowers

If someone asked me to choose one fabric out of all others to make flowers I would choose felt – it may not have the smoothness of Satin, volume of Organdy, luster of Organza or luxuriousness of Silk – still the bright vibrant colors and ease of attaching with glue, non-fraying edges, stiff looks but malleable nature and the fact that there is less work  involved in making anything out of felt makes me a convert – felt is great for making beautiful flowers.
