    You quilters have helped me so many times with my quilting questions, I thought I'd ask for some help with wool material. I like to make my seven grandchildren Christmas ornaments each year. This year I wanted to make them in wool but cannot find any patterns. Any ideas on where to look?

    I'm not much help, but, can't you use any cloth ornament pattern and use the wool?

    primative gatherings-
    Sue Spargo-
    backyard gatherings
    paperpieces.com (they have little template kits for ornaments that are cute- you can use them for wools great because you do not have to turn anything under---your edges are already finished (as long as you washed your wool in good hot water- with detergent, rinsed in cold- then dried in a hot dryer)
    just type wool ornaments in to the search box- you will find many patterns, along with wool sources- much inspiration

    Thank you, ladies! Sometimes the most obvious answer is hidden when you look too much! As far as finishing the edges, I thought I would just do a blanket stitch to join the front and back. Thanks again!!
