Found a nice free pattern for the swan cut from cream felted wool and hand appliqued to festive plaid wool background. Holly is cut from overdyed green wool and berries from red wool. The stitching is done with perle cotton. I used a variegated perle cotton for the detail on the wing.
This one is stitched to a background of charcoal gray wool. These have not been finished yet-- I am thinking throw pillows.
All the wool came from thrift store garments washed and felted by me.
