I used a little bit of everything...studs, crocheted flowers, ribbon, fabric, buttons, embroidery thread, brooches. One of the best things about making these was that I got to use up some of the items I have been hoarding for quite a while (I'm one of those people that finds a good deal on something and buys it so that I will have it on hand IN CASE I ever need it). These were really simple to make. I simply cut the desired shape from the fleece and added the embellishements and buttons and cut a slit for the buttonhole. No seams necessary.
