Sweet & Simple Wool Appliqué


15 Folk Art Projects to Stitch by Unknown

Add to Basket
Book Description

From traditional to more contemporary, there's a wool project for every style and skill level in Sweet & Simple Wool Appliqué.

From traditional penny rugs to playful embellishments on a contemporary blue jean jacket, this delightful book offers something for everyone, whether you want to try wool appliqué for the first time (how about the darling little Cherry Tomato Pinkeep Necklace?) or you're an experienced wool fanatic (get instructions for a beautiful wallhanging-size quilt!) Projects include everything from the table mats, runners, pinkeeps and pincushions to pillows, a needle book, a notebook cover and more, all in the popular folk art style.


This is a great beginners' guide to wool appliqué. It shows diagrams of appliqué methods and clear embroidery stitches to embellish your projects for the folk look. It is what it says sweet and simple. Projects include notebook cover, quilts, table runner, cushion (pillow if you are American) and a needle book. Out of the 15 projects, there are 6 pincushions, a few too many perhaps, but those ideas could be used for other projects. For example, the honey bee pincushion could be enlarged and repeated to make a wall hanging or quilt. One pear template could be used to make a quilt too. One has to use one's imagination - the inspiration is there - it's how you use it that counts. Clear instructions and photos and there is the bonus of template sheets too, easily traceable on good quality paper. The designs are by various quilt artists.
