Here I have laid out all of the roving and put a piece of tulle over it. I was worried about the purple and green roving felting correctly. I had bought it as a hand-dyed blend, and noticed it was actually wool superwash and I was concerned it would not felt. (Superwash is a wool than can be machine washed with less concern about felting or shrinkage). There is white wool roving as a base, and I did add some thin wool over the top as well. It felted just fine.
Here it is after it dried. I think its lovely. I will add a bit of dry felting and I want to machine stitch to make the lily pads pop.

Wet felting is a lot of work and takes some patience but the results make me smile.
