To expedite this (I assume that you don't find ordering these felts to be an attractive alternative), buy some sax or clarinet pads that have an outside dimension that is barely too big and a height that is obviously too big. By the time you tear away the leather or bladder skin and the cardboard back, you might have a nice little white round felt that is exactly right. Depending on the pad, you might have to punch a hole in the center with a leather punch. If the felt is too thick, you can use a so-so heated iron to carefully iron (shrink by heat) them thinner. Good luck.
