I told you a bit ago that I was excited to begin a wool project again. It’s been years since I’ve finished a wool project. I enjoy wool and like the variety of texture, it brings to decorating.
This is the project I picked to start with. It was simple and didn’t require a lot of colors. I thought it would be a nice neutral piece that would look good with my other decor.
I was watching Sew Tattered and she showed this wool book. Pure and Simple by Maggie Bonanomi. I bought a used copy so it was less than $10. I didn’t want to book to spend its life sitting on a shelf so I picked a project and jumped in.
I found my Steam and Seam and got to work cutting out the pieces.
I have to laugh. I was so excited to be doing a wool project again that I forgot to take pictures!! Typically I take pictures of each step when I make projects so I can share with you how I did them. Not this time.
I realized that when I got this far…finished. UGH.
It turned out much like the one in the book. My flowers and buttons were a little bigger.
I went around the house and auditioned places for this to go. As of now, I don’t have a permanent place but that’s okay. It’s a versatile piece that can go pretty much anywhere.
My apologies for not taking step-by-step pictures. I’ll try to remember next time…because there is going to be a next time. I’m excited to be doing a few wool projects again. I likely won’t be working on them on Wednesdays like others who are participating in Wool Wednesday because I work on Wednesdays and by the time I get home, there isn’t much time to do any projects like that. That won’t stop be from doing a few wool projects though.
It was so much fun! I’m kind of hoping to get to a store with wool…hm…maybe for my birthday?! That sounds like a great idea.
