I am feeling like this will be a more intermediate class. Though, I have to tell you, I have a little trouble gauging the talent level of a mysterious student. IF there even are takers for this class!
I first felt the initial freehand on one of my pre-cut pieces. I fit these to my android phone. The second piece I added a flower. THEN, I needle felted the two pieces of wool together *see the border* that is all that holds these two pieces together. This could easily be hand stitched instead. I just like the organic look of the needle felted line. The hard part, I am guessing, will be the freehand nature of the designs. Not for all students. So, I need to come up with a way for them to make their own stencils.
The wool I used is from Weeks Dye Works. It is hand dyed, soft and lovely. They dye wonderful colors in threads and wool. http://www.weeksdyeworks.com/wool-fabric.php check them out, they are lovely!
