Wool Candle Mat

This was the UFO that doubled as a brand new start.

I had this kit sitting around for a number of years but never started it.  This year, not only did I start it, but I finished it!  I haven't worked with wool much but it was fun.  It's novel to work with materials that don't fray and don't need seam allowances.

A friend of mine had a little votive holder and electric candle sitting about.  She passed it along and it was perfect to finish off this little mat.

Have you worked much with wool?  What have your experiences been like?  Any recommendations?

  1. What a cute candle mat :-) I've worked with wool a little...and enjoyed it, but don't have enough experience to give any recommendations, sorry!

  2. It's adorable! Your stitching looks perfect as always!

  3. What cute little snow people and wonderfully designed trees! I recently learned how to make felt... but have done nothing with the two pieces I've created.
