The best way to have a good idea is to have lots of them.
I have been playing around with wet felting and this teal poppy is what I came up with. It was a hit at Piper's which posed a problem. I didn't know where I purchased the wool roving and I really couldn't reproduce a flower that was like it. On the right you will see some of my attempts (the yellow poppies, the orange poppies and the maroon one). I think that the creation of the teal poppy might just just have been beginner's luck.
