Default felt padded appliques??

So I have googled and searched and cant find what I am looking for. Time to turn to my trusty fellow HGs.
I am wanting to make my own padded felt appliques, but cannot find a stupid simple tutorial for any.
I need something that has a pattern I can trace, cut out and a brief explanation on how to stuff and sew it. ANY help is much appreciated in advance.

Thanks ladies! You rock!!!

I believe most of them are made with die-cut machines. I do not have one, so I can't give a review of them, but there are many threads on here about them and I'm sure someone else can help a bit more than I can. Good luck!

I have used pictures from a coloring book or hand drawn (ice cream cones, cupcakes, dots) and cut them out by hand. I then pieced them on another, larger piece using a zigzag stitch on the sewing machine. Cut that out close to the stitching and hand sewed that onto the pants I was patching. If you stuff the pieces while piecing the onto a bigger piece, would this get the effect you are going for? Just a thought.

Also, while there are no tutorials I came across, I found lots of patterns for appliques on the internet.

hahahah......someone beat me too it! I was looking for the exact same thing!!!

I see a ton of cute felt appliques and thought I might try to make the odd one or two by hand (kinda sick of making korkers for the moment).

I brought some felt sheets from Hobby Lobby (not the thickest or best quality by any means) and a couple of spools of thread and was just going to 'experiment'. I would love to know if there are any 'templates' out there, or if any of the ladies does not mind sharing??? (you can PM me if you prefer). I am going to be doing this old school tho', no sewing machine or any other gadgets and I usually use alli clips

Are most of the felt appliques padded?. I see for example the flower kind with a button in the middle is not. What type of material is used for the stitching wool, emb floss? Soooo many questions I know, sorry!! Wanted to try my hand at making them.

Well I look forward to seeing what everyone has to say.
