Description

Felted wool is a dream to applique – the fabric is soft and buttery to the touch, there is no need to turn under seam allowances and it needles beautifully! Because the stitching is bold, it’s great for a take-along project or evenings sitting with the family.

Diane will share lots of tips and tricks as you create your 9” square Sheep on Wheels block, perfect to use on its own or to embellish a ready-made pillow or tote.

Level of experience:  Beginner
