I believe this would apply to this category- they are stuffed mushrooms!
I made the larger, yellow one first, for myself about 2 weeks ago. Then just an hour or two ago I made the smaller one for my friend. They are made from some sort of felt, batting, and random fabric scraps I had lying around. They each have a cute little hanging strap on their tops. [I've had mine hanging on my car mirror for the past week]  Grin

Those are so cute!  I wonder if you could stuff them with something scented, like lavender buds or something, to make air fresheners?  Going off to try this!

Thank you so much for the comments  Cheesy

I've wondered about the other stuffing options too- especially since I hang mine in my car.
 I basically just stitched around the edges of the top fabric (it's in a circular shape), it to make it all "squnched-up" at the bottom. Then I stuffed the pouch it created with the batting. I took a piece of cardboard that I cut into a small circle and placed it in the "pouch", and then pulled the thread to make it tight around the cardboard, and tied it off.
  After all that, I just hot glued the rolled up white felt to the cardboard underneath the mushroom top!
 So I'm pretty sure you could replace the batting with whatever your heart desires!
