Sweetest Girl's Party Favour

Faire had her 8th Birthday Party a couple of weeks ago, and I managed to finish seven of these to give as party favours. Much easier to think of party favours when the guests are all of the same sex. And girls. Frankly, girls are easier with this sort of thing.
When I saw these on Purl Bee weeks ago, I knew they would be the perfect project for some of the lovely wool felt I got from Ella and have been hoarding. And I was able to cut out 10 (or maybe 11?) roses out of one sheet of red wool felt! I think I'll be ordering more in other colours for spring. They would be sweet in an Easter basket too. And way easier than I thought they'd be. Although, in true Bonnie fashion, because the first one was easier than I thought, I went on to procrastinate for a loooong time and finished sewing these up the day of the party. I must remember that easier than I thought does not mean easy. Or quick, when you are making so many. Oh well, it's done now.
