Tuesday Tip….Wool Snippets

We have just received a shipment of 2 1/2″ Wool Snippets. These lovely curated packets contain 10 pieces of wool cut into 2 1/2″ squares. Each packet has a variety of colours amongst the little squares that are just right for leaves, flowers, petals, stems, houses, animals and more.

So what exactly can you do with these wool packets? Look at these two lovely patterns from Front Porch Quilts:

 

These little pieces are very convenient to use for wool appliqué. Our store also has a big selection of wool thread to accompany your wool appliqué project. Some stitchers also like using DMC cotton floss to appliqué their wool onto a background fabric.

To achieve a real primitive look to a project, wool is perfect. It doesn’t really fray at all and with a blanket stitch around the edges, wool pieces can be beautifully appliquéd. More and more patterns are coming from designers who adore creating projects with wool.

Here are a few project suggestions to create with little pieces of wool:

Stacey West of Buttermilk Basin is big into wool appliqué and we can special order any of her books or patterns if you request them. Click on her name above to view her designs.

Lisa Bonegean of Primitive Gatherings also designs fabrics for Moda and has many patterns for cotton fabrics and/or wool appliqué. Click on her name above to view her designs.

Wool pieces can be applied to a background using a fusible web such as Steam a SeamHeat n’ Bond or freezer paper. Once a small piece of wool fused into place, then a hand blanket stitch around the edges and detail embroidery can be added in order to make a project delightful and worthy of display in your home or to give as a gift. During the summer months ahead many stitchers relax and stitch these types of projects as they are portable and easy to take with you.

We hope you will consider a wool project and enjoy the variety of wool bits in every packet of wool snippets!

Happy stitching!
