Working with felted wool is easy and addictive! It can be done quickly by machine or with relaxing hand sewing (my favorite). For more information, click on Working with Wool at top of homepage.
FABRIC INFO: I've received so many requests, I sold the fabric for a while, but my own supply is now sold out. You can still find the fabric online by doing a search for French Laundry Parisian Stripe Red. Fabric is 80% cotton 20% linen with a nubby texture. Sells for about $38 per yard. You need a piece 22" x 22". Purchase 5/8 yard for 22-1/2" tight fit or 3/4 yard for 27" generous fit. Width is 54", so you might end up with enough for 2 pillow fronts! I only used this fabric on the front. On the back, I used a regular-weight red ticking stripe.
