I didn't follow any plan and just totally made it up as I went. First, I knew I wanted it to be "squishy" so I planned on using quilt batting, but this clearance skateboard print fleece was much cheaper. I got a 2X2 board, got it cut in half, and wrapped it in the fleece.
Then, I wrapped the pretty purple sparkly material around it, and secured it in the back with a staple gun. This was the first time I used one of these neat inventions! Finally I wrapped ribbon around it with which to clip the bows and flowers onto. I stapled a the ribbon as well in a few spots.
