Debbie, needle felting is when you use a barred needle and poke two pieces of wool together. I used a wool background and then wool felt for my flower and my leaf. I started by laying the leaf on the background and then poking it with the special needle felting needle. It makes the fibers of the wool felt grab on to the fibers of the wool background creating its own woven bond. There is no need to add glue, the fibers intertwine like fingers holding on to each other. The flower almost becomes a part of the fabric underneath and doesn't look like a separate piece laying on top of the fabric as a typical applique would appear.

This is a popular craft among people who work with dyed wool from sheep (roving) or felted wool.

Hope this helps you understand the process a little better.

I have never heard of needle felting and I guess still don't understand it. What holds everything together? Do you apply glue before you needle felt? If no, won't it pull apart a some time?
