After a long time, we are pleased to bring this kit back into inventory!
Kit includes a complete pattern, all the appliqué wools (already felted), all the appliqué threads (wool blend, hand-dyed from The Gentle Art), freezer paper and background wool fabric -"antique black" (felted).
A charming topper for above an inside door, this "della robia" display of fruit with the central pineapple motif welcomes family and friends into your home!

I have always had the fruit over the front door at Christmas. Now I am going to make this and have it framed to hang over the fireplace year round.
I traced the design on light weight interfacing and sewed it to the background.
This makes it very easy to position the applique.
I love the wool floss. It is very easy to work with and doesn't fray. Imagine my surprise when I discovered it is from a company in New Albany, Ohio which is only a few miles from where I live.
Love the selection of colors of the fruit.
