I spent a little bit of time looking through some amazing books
that cover the art of wool felt applique and I just
had to try my hand (needle) at it.
I have this design from a Trish Burr embroidery book and
thought it would be great for a wool felt applique.
I love to do applique with regular cotton fabric, however, I
have never worked with wool felt........... have any of you?
One nice thing about the wool felt is that you do not have
to turn under raw edges. The wool felt does not ravel.
I was also a bit apprehensive about cutting out such small pieces
and wondering how the wool felt would hold up to the floss and
needle during embroidery.
I managed to cut out the small pieces and after that,
the placement and the embroidery went well!
There are many wonderful books and supplies available for this
fun kind of stitchery if you are wanting to get started with your
Some craft stores have plenty of books and many online websites
have books and supplies needed.
Your fun is only a click away!
So tell me........do any of you work with wool felt applique
I would love to hear........and see.
