If you follow us on Facebook you will know that this is a design we are offering as a freebie. We understand though that many of you like to purchase the materials needed. We are happy to oblige! We do not have a finished picture for you as we hope you will stitch along with us through the holiday season, but we will provide the colored in picture that you see here. Have fun with this pretty design, it will measure approximately 20 x 30 inches when finished, depending on finishing technique. Your kit will come with the striped cotton fabric, the off white feedsack fabric, the ornament cut outs, the fringe for the pine needle swag and the threads. You will need to provide your own backing fabric which will be dependent on if you choose to make a wall hanging or a pillow. Instructions will suggest basic method for wool applique, but we want you to be creative with you stitching embellishments on your ornaments. We will guide you on how to achieve the pine needle look with your fringe for the Swag. Follow along on Facebook as we work on this neat project.
"General wool applique statement"
Wool applique is the art of creating a design with hand cut pieces of wool and hand stitching them to a backing foundation. Here at The Old Tattered Flag, we have made a few of our rug hooking and punch needle designs available for wool applique. The patterns will come with detailed written instructions, templates and a colored cover card, as well as the recommended amounts of wool you will need for each project. In this section, you will also find some fun, limited seasonal projects and projects that have been featured in our weekly live Facebook videos.
