Chelle, I have sewn wool on a machine and had no issues.  I think for what you are trying to do you could just either make a very small seam and press really good, or you could zig zag stitch the two pieces together.  Watching to see what others say, but there shouldn't be a  problem to just sew the two pieces together as you would other fabrics.

A local artist makes things out of re-claimed wool; purses, scarves, blankets etc.  For her blankets she butts the pieces together and zigzags them together. They look so cool.

It's SO cute!!   I know I'll be sorry I didnt do these either :(  

Mom washes wool for me from time to time and she delivered a bunch this morning that look great!!   I need need need to find another wool project.. it's the BEST 'filler' project there can be.   

I got a few pattern in E Tn and several in Branson.. ANY of those would be good to start..  

I still want to work up a few kits for the TP for those that haven't tried wool..   I still want to dye some fabric to have a mottled look... Les told me how .. I just need to pick a few shades and pick up the dye.

Oh, I think more of us would like to know how to do this!  Would you or Leslie like to post some tips?

If Les doesn't have time, I will give it a go. Les has much more experience but I think I'll get the dye tomorrow.. memory cells permitting.    So Monday I can play and take pics .. notes as I go..  OR  Les can write the steps here and I'll attempt them and get pics..  but we'll get something going.
