Well......maybe like the old 500-600 punches.
This is a needle-punch dollhouse rug that I recently finished for a friends' Birthday. She is a doll house creator and collector.
Here is the back - it is coated with tacky glue to keep all the loops secured to the canvas. I think the backs look kind of cool.
Here is a little vignette that I set up. You can see by the spool of thread that this rug is quite small.
Before I began this project my floss looked like this - ooops.
I am now converting that hot mess into this. Here are a couple more patterns that I'd like to do. I'd like to glue one onto the top of box.
Here are a couple that I've made in the past -
This little "cel phone rug" I made for my daughter, it looks like our cat; Starbuck.
This one is my favorite. I glued this to a fake Nantucket (fantucket) basket. I framed it with some white cotton cording. I use this basket as a catchall for quilting projects and stuff and bring it to guild meetings, sewing group, etc..
And finally - I finished my Pineapple Quilt top. I'm calling it "Lunar Pineapple". I'm going to submit it to be part of an exhibit. Even if it doesn't get accepted, I'll be happy to have the unexpected new quilt. I'm glad I took on the challenge and made this top in 3 weeks, it really got me back in the sewing room. Now to machine quilt it, but how?
For fun I did all the piecing on my little feather weight. It belonged to my mother-in-law and I'm so grateful to have it. They are just so cute and fun to sew on.
