Had a couple of young women over here a few days ago helping them get started with needle felting.  Duh! I was too involved and did not think to take photos as we three felted away.  But in showing them techniques my hands turned out this flower so thought at least would share that.  LOL  So here it is.

Thanks Rylizbeth and Roxylu.

i've been pondering how could possibly make one of those!!  yours is so pretty!!  good job!!

Hey Roxylu, just in case you want to try it.  Here is how.  This one started as a NF ball using white batt and green yarn.  Then in showing the ladies how one could make relief areas and raised areas, began to add bits of white to make an organge section sort of shape on the ball.  Pulled the green yarn into the vally between sections and needled along the yarn to deepen the groove.  Left the wisps of the add ons loose at the top.  After getting the base sectioned, cut the green yarn cross-overs at the top to make center fringe.  Then using bits of white, made petal shape loops. laid on top of the extending white wisps and gently needled those into petals.  Added a teensy tiny bit of yellow to center of each big petal.  Wound green yarn around bottom of ball and needled that in place.  A pin back made it into a lapel pin, but one could have attached it to a wire step or a picture or a hat, ..........  you get the picture.   Have a go, and tell us about it.

Oh dang,  it sounds more complicated that it is,  didn't mean to discourage you.  Just give it a go.  You may also get the same effect using a different approach.  Was just sharing how this one was made.  You can make a different shape flower too.

When sectioning the ball, it started looking like a seed pod to me and the petals just grew out on the top from the wisps.

What a detailed flower!
Hmm, this has inspired me to try make a poppy husk (you know, when the poppy flower dries out?
I think you could use a similar technique
