What sort of flower design are you after?
CraftyZary makes needle-felted daisy designs
(she sent me a flower pin and a ring. Both are beautiful!)
And I wet-felt a more floppy 'morning glory' type flower.

Do you have pics of what you're after?

Those are very pretty.  It looks like they are felted nearly flat in layers then needled  together in center with felted balls needled into the center.  Just take some colored roving and start needleing.  If you need a pattern, try a coloring book or flower book to get a basic petal shape.  Needle a flat circle, then start detailing it with directional strokes.  HTH

Thanks for the cool link!

If you have not needle felted at all you may find this tut useful -
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=51271.0

and then this
http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=51942.0

once you start poking the roving,  you will see how it works.

More questions after checking those, just ask.  Best wishes.

added info__ am guessing by your avatar but if you live in Michigan you might be near Suzanne Pufpaff http://www.yurtboutique.com/     She is expremely knowledgeable- offeres lots of supplies, classes, books.

There's a pattern from Knitty on all sorts of knitted flowers...one of them is felted:

There's also a kit you can buy (not affiliated w/ Knitty), but I don't know much about it.  Maybe someone else has bought it?
