thanks you guys i used A size 2 needle and the circle thing are emblishments from a company called STANISLAUS imports. They have a web address which is: http://www.stanlislausimports.com I found it at craft store in the scrapbooking section.
As loobylashes and roxybadoxy said about interfacing, i would definitely use it to help make it thicker and stiffer. i like to use it a lot when i need to make things stronger. You could also use iron on interfacing, which you would just need to iron the interfacing straight on to the fabric. They have different weights of interfacing you could use...i usually stick with medium/heavy weight. if the fabric you're planning on using is to thin, you could use interfacing on both fabrics...the outside fabric and the lining fabric. then add whatever embellishments you're going to use then sew together:) i hope this helps:)
