A Very Wooly Christmas Gift

I got all of the wool blocks done and this Christmas gift is all set to give away!

To finish the blocks, I put the backing fabric and the wool piece right sides together, stitched around leaving a small opening to turn, then turned right side out, pressed and top stitched.  I didn't want any extra stitching interfering with the cute rick rack looking border on the "frame" piece.

Then I had to figure out how to make it easy to change the blocks out each month.  I knew I wanted to use velcro but I didn't want the stitching of that to show either.  I found some iron on velcro that worked really well!  It seems very "stuck" like it will do the job well!

One Christmas present done - many to go....
