Snowman Wool Applique

This project isn't a current project any longer, 'cause it's done!

Instead of using a large piece of expensive and pretty wool for the back I chose to use flannel, called woolies. It is a terrific substitute.
 I put two pieces right sides together.  If you are smarter than me, you could use one piece and fold it over and only have 3 sides to sew....duh!
  Sew around all four sides and trim the corners.
Make a slit on one fabric only. Make sure you slice it where your project will cover it up. As you can see, I wasn't concerned about a straight line.
Turn right sides out, push your corners out and press. Then applique your wool piece on top.

Ta-Da! Stand back and enjoy your handiwork!

  11. Sweet little snowmen. Thanks for the info about Woolies. I did a little web search and found a site currently with 36 colors/designs for sale, on sale (Fabric Depot). Looks like a practical version as an option to wool.
