Wool – Mug Rugs

 Wool Leaves

Play with the colors of wool, cut them into shapes for these funky leaves and then learn how to use simple, basic hand embroidery stitches to create beautiful visual texture.  You will have enough wool and thread in your kit to create 4 mug rugs, just in time for the holidays.  These make wonderful gifts for the person who has everything but needs a personal touch in their life.  

This is a hand sewing, project as well as process oriented class where you will learn about embellishing, embroidery and hand stitchery.

Your kit will include: wool for four mug rugs, felt for backing, 5 spools of 12 wt. thread, hand sewing needles, fusible web, pattern and handouts, all in a reusable vinyl bag.

Please bring a good pair of scissors for fabric cutting (preferably one with serrated blades...some will be available for purchase in class if you do not own a good pair), pins, a small trash bag, a smile.
