I’ll gladly tell you how I do something. Just please don’t confuse that with the right way to do it, and almost certainly not the only way.
My lovely and talented wife has very cool post on choosing wool for an appliqué project:
Before beginning a new project though, I usually spend some time thinking about the medium I will be working with, which is the various types of wools and threads. There are so many interesting options out there! How do you know what to choose? For a quick-start project, I will share a few of the basic supplies I like to consider for making a wool appliqué project, including the fabrics and felts, needles and threads.

Old school modular furniture. Three legs for stability on uneven surfaces.
The old one was getting pretty ratty. This is some leftover mahagony I had from a side table build. It has a nasty twist in it, which made it unsuitable for anything long term. I’m curious to see how flat it stays like this.
Just amazing, beautiful work. One day.

I hope you love birds too. It is economical. It saves going to heaven.
It is very pleasant work carving bird bowls. I start with a branch and a few roughly sketched lines. After much bulk is removed with the axe and adze, much of the carving on these small bowls is done sitting down with a couple knives and a gouge or two.
I’ve finished a couple recently, one in birch at the top, and another from a curved cherry branch (below). I’ve just posted them, as well as another cherry bowl (further below) to my available for purchase page at the website if you’d like to have a closer look.
