The felt on the back is how you keep them in place and it acts as a nice liner on the inside of the elastic.
The elastic is just fold over elastic. YOu can find it on etsy or shop here on hg for it. it's 5/8" wide usually.

You could do it with two pcs of felt but I think it's cleaner when you do top to bottom ~ flowers, then elastic, then felt. Totally up to you

Someone around here - i think mama j - sells the rolled satin rosettes
Now I have a question on how you apply all the flowers and feathers. Are you saying you don't glue all the flowers together with a felt backing, you glue the flowers and feathers, etc, to the foe, then apply the felt in the same size/shape to fit behind all the flowers and things and apply the felt to the back of the foe, to hold it all in place? I know, it sounds like I just repeated everything you said, but is that what you meant?
