For Fabric Camellia:
*A fat quarter of cotton or silk; you can use one or two colors. If using silk, use China silk or silk charmeuse; dupioni or Thai silk will fray too much.
For Felt Camellia:
*A sheet of wool felt in one or two colors. Wool felt is much better than craft felt - the flower looks better with the wool.
*Small amount of felt or buckram
*Basic hand sewing supplies
*Iron, ironing board
*Freezer paper (can be found in the foils/wraps section at the grocery store)
*Hot glue gun and glue sticks
*Depending on application, either a barrette/clip or a headband
