I thought I'd try my hand at some wool applique....
I love all the overdyed wools that are available to us and have collected quite a bit of it over the last few years. I usually add a piece of wool here or there to my cross stitch creations, but have not worked on a full wool project.
I love ditty bags too, so I drew up a design and cut out the pieces in a few different shades of wool. Used some overdyed floss and also some perle cotton to attach the wool to some wonderful chocolate prairie cloth.
I wanted to also add some cross stitch....of course, right?
So, I added a few little do dads and a date with some more overdyed floss. I really like the combo of the two. I constructed a fully lined ditty bag. I like to add interest and also use up some of my fabric scraps, by using two and sometimes three different fabrics for the binding and strap. I love the look it gives....very make do.
Hope you're having a creative day too.....
