You need four felt circles; two of each color. Mine are about 5" and 4" in diameter. Trace around a small saucer if you want. Cut an X in the middle of one light-colored felt circle and then sew the matching piece on top--all the way around, using a 1/4" seam allowance. Clip curves and turn right-side out through the X opening. (Enlarge opening if necessary.) Stuff lightly and then tack the tan circles on top. Add a "butter pat" if desired.
