My new craft I am just learning has begun, a needle punch cushion cover for jades nursery, The hessian is 20 inches x 20 inches the wool is a raid of my stash in the cabin, A mixture from thick to thin. I have transferred my pattern to the hessian , found a embroidery hoop , and started to do outline after which I fill in the spaces with the different colours.

I have to stop now to get the diner ready. Be back later with the progress. Linda x

Not as easy as I thought but I am getting there, hessian no good for the type of punchneedle I wish to do. So I have ordered Aida fabric two by two.
Transferring was cut out main out line drew around it and filled in the detail by eye . But other methods that you usually do you should do.

I shall practice on other material until the right piece of cloth is delivered, Then go at it again, it’s really great fun and a sense of satisfaction when you know you can do it. I’ll be back. Linda x

Yes it is the same liz embroidery punch uses floss and the needle is thin. The one I have is a thick needle that will take double knitting wool and up , giving a tapestry or rug like finish. Depending on the thickness of wool used.

It will be a Hard wearing fabric that I end up with for covering stools and cushions.. just waiting for the 14 count Aida, The Americans call it Monk’s cloth, the patterns I have are American and are sent as a pdf file which I print out no paying for postage and it’s instant . Etsy have a lot of patterns.
I have plastic canvas and bath mat plastic canvas so I might try it out on those fabrics see what it looks like. They have quite big squares on there fabric weave so I could use strips of material, I think up north they call it proding , Denise knows about that one.

More later. Linda x

I bet it’s agonising to wait for the Aida to get going, it’s a pity the hessian won’t work. Will be keeping an eye on your progress, intrigued! 😉

Here is the bath room mat material it is made of rubber so ideal for soaking up the wet and steam. After a shower. This would be toweling strips I would use. But I’ll experimant with thick wool. Plastic canvas is some where but you all know what that looks like.
