I did the rose on the clover brush felting matt and I use the clover multiple needle tool and crisscross the roving in a few tones of red, petal by petal around a wire flower stem and then began layering the petals and a similar process for the leaves. I cover the stem and joined area with floral tape.
I used to white wool roving and did the basic shape of the Koi. I then began needle felting a better grade of white roving on the fish’s body. Once I got the desired shape, I created the tail, fins and top glider fin. I have a Koi pond and I have a Koi that looks just like the one I made.
