Cut five- or six-inch circles (depending on which size you want to make) of velvet and brown linen, placing wrong sides together. Leave a three-inch tail of embroidery thread to start, then do a running stitch spanning circle, 1/2 inch away from edge. Hold onto both ends of thread to pull and gather fabric so top edge forms a crown and bottom forms a bowl shape. Stuff empty bowl with fill, and cover with a small linen circle. Pull threads again, pushing circle inside, and double-knot to close. Add a few back-stitches, just in case!
