A Rose

I call this method "A ribbon". The simple way of making these flowers is to felt a very fine and delicate strip (or ribbon), then fold it and form a rose, very much the same way as fabric flowers.

This is with what we start with - three very thin layers of fine wool (pink first and cream on the top):

These are the next stages of felting:

When it's dry and ironed I fold it and get the flower, like this:
