Default Base for cluster rosette headband

Ladies,

I'm trying to make my first cluster headband with rosette and I need to understand what type of felt to get for the base. Also, do you have recommendations for the color? For instance, I want to use blue/pink rosettes, what color of felt should I get? Does it matter? Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Also, I noticed that felt comes in different weight. Should I get the lightest one?

I'm trying to make something like this, only on the plastic headband.

I just get the felt from Michaels or Joanne's that is .29 a sheet. I think you can get it cheaper if you get it in bulk, but I have not gotten that far.

I use the same color felt as my headband, so if you are doing a pink headband, I would use a pink base.

Do they sell them in sheets? I went to Joanne's yesterday and all I could find was the huge rolls of felt for $5.99 per yard.

At my joann's it's in the same section as the feathers and mask blanks, random leather trim, and I think they have the doll parts in the same section...it's a bunch of random stuff.
