Using the Clover pen style and the 5 needle tools, I began felting down the lightest colors on the right sides of the bottles. The hand felting tools tack the roving in place so that when I put the piece under the needles of the Babylock Embellisher, the roving stays in place. I also used a piece of large-hole netting over top of the roving when felting on the machine to stabilize the roving and keep it from catching on the foot as the needle head passes over the wool.
Next I added the medium and dark colors to the bottles and the table top. Again I tacked the roving in place with the Clover tools, then felted the whole surface on the Embellisher machine.
