Wool and homespun coasters are all done. I made 24 total. The black wool is 5" single layer (I started with 6", but it was too flopsy looking.), then a double sewn circle of homespun(4" sewn together. Cut a slit through a single layer. Turn right side out. Iron flat. Place slit side to the black wool.) Hand dyed wool for appliques. I used black pearl cotton #8 for the stitching. Fun and fast!
Update...thank you everyone for the emails and comments. I have placed these coasters for sale on my website. Angela

They are so cute. I have never used wool for applique and want to try it now. But I am having trouble where to buy wool fabric in Norway.

Those are just so cute. Thanks for the instructions. I have never done anything with wool but this might be a good place to start.
