Cut a rectangle of blue felt to be your base. Fold in half to find the "cover" of your cell case.
Begin laying out your design on your base felt, starting with the silk in a circle for the center of your flower. Create "petals" with your wool around the silk. Lay your base felt (open) on your needlefelting mat and begin felting. Move strands of the fibers as needed to create the design you want.
When your flower base is well secured, add a circle of red wool for the center of your flower. Continue felting until all pieces are secured.
Embellish your felted design with Kreinik metallic braid. Stitch around the outside of your silk center with the gold braid and then add a zig-zag design around the red center of your flower. Finish your case by folding the base in half and sewing up the sides to close them.
