wool + prairie cloth + cross stitch = a wonderful mix!
This pattern will tempt all you wool appliquers to get that cross stitch needle & hoop out once again. This design is mostly wool applique with just a sprinkling of cross stitch motifs here & there for added charm. I love the mix of the 2 elements - wool applique & cross stitch. Prairie cloth is a heavier loosely woven cloth with coarse threads...with a great feel. The cross stitched motifs are worked over two threads, making for larger X's and great for those who want to dabble in cross stitch...not too tough or overwhelming!
Also arriving soon at www.countrystitchesonline.com are several new colors of wool felt-
beautiful colors, all inspired by nature!
These wool felts have a content of 30& wool/70% acrylic...just enough wool that when wet and dried they felt up real nice. Perfect for penny rugs & wool applique!
