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....
