I’ve been craving a wool project where I can just “veg” out and do some hand stitching, so here is what I came up with. My initial plan was to take these three mini pictures, 8×8 each, and hang them vertically together for a skinny wall…however, now I’m not so sure. My favorite parts are the embroidery fireflies on the owl and the french knot sparks on the campfire.
Wool can be expensive, so a cheap way to get your hands on it is to go thrifty for 100% wool clothing items. Suit jackets, sweaters…throw them in a cycle of hot water and a hot dryer and you have some nice felted wool.
Easy project steps:
-Draw a picture on fusible web. (remember your picture will be the reverse of whatever you draw for your final project)
-fuse onto wool following fusible web instructions. Cut out pictures.
-fuse onto background wool.
-stitch around. I just used a very primitive stitch to tack everything down.
