tools and supplies
Joann's has clover needlefelting supplies
Needlefelting pen or individual needles
high density foam, small pillow, on or needlefelting mat to needlefelt on
The needle felting pen I have is from Clover.
I chose two colors of wool to make my rose.
I took two 1/4 thick strips of wool. broke them both in half, making two 10 inch (approx.)sections of each color.
combine two colors together, as in picture, set aside the second set for later
Take the section and roll it up in a spiral.
Be sure to use straight up and down motions when needlefelting so as to not break the needles they are very fragile. Needlefelt your fiber until you have a round flat disc. Lift carefully off of mat or pillow and turn over to felt the other side.
I took my needle pen and very carefully felted the sides in to make more of a petal shape. You can do this by holding the disc sidways and inserting the needles then doing up and down motions without taking the needles all the way out of the fiber. Watch out for Fingers!!!
Repeat with other section you set aside
place one disc on top of the other and needlefelt in center to felt both pieces togethter.
