Laura Q

For the felted brooches I used a felt backing piece then I placed the image in the center and felted it down with wool roving, around all edges. Next I layered some lace or cheesecloth and felted that with wool roving. Then I embellished with silk ribbon embroidered Fargo roses, some petite beads, and sequins. Sew on any lace before adding back felt piece. I trimmed around the edge, added a pin back to a felt backing piece and sewed around the edges to cover back of felting. Hope this makes sense Laura.
