Woolly bullion knots

I'm making the reindeer pillow from this book by Clare Youngs. It's not finished yet but I wanted to share how great the bullion knots look when stitched in crewel wool. They are so tactile- it's tempting to cover a whole cushion with them- maybe that's a future project! I would like to see what these knots would look like mostly in white but with the occasional coloured one scattered amongst them. why does every embroidery project seem to result in more new ideas? I feel like I will never find the time to make all the things I have planned.

I am using my beloved appleton crewel wool and the fabric is actually wool fabric from an old coat!

Hope you are all nearly done with your Christmas crafting- work those needles ;)


  1. That is gorgeous - love the fuzzy wool fur.

  2. Thank you! I love the texture of stitched wool. : )

  3. They do give a nice texture


I'd love to hear from you
