Step 1:

Using the felt, create 12 circles of the same sizes. Then cut 12 bigger circles of the same sizes using the fabric scraps.

Step 2:

Get one fabric scrap circle and bast the edges. Once done, pull the thread to tighten and cover the felt. Do the same for the remaining 11 pieces. It is better to use different fabric patterns on the circles.

Step 3:

Cut 2 cotton and 1 jean rectangular shapes with the bottom having curved corners. Once done, place them on top of each other with the denim fabric on top. Bast the edges together. Make another piece with the same measurements and process for the backside.

Step 4:

Place the 12 circles on the sewn denim having 3 layers. (4 for each layer horizontally) Secure the pieces using pins. Use a ladder stitch to sew them on the jean fabric.

Step 5:

Get a long fabric scrap that is not too wide, then fold it in half and stitch on the middle. Once done, secure it on the sides and bottom edge of the sewn denim fabric using pins. Then sew the edges together. Place the back side with the denim fabric facing down and sew the edges together.
