I’ve been spending some time lately on this simple koi design, which I’m punching directly onto a canvas bag:
This was another super-fast embroidery project using the needlepunch. I can say that buying a new hoop, a plastic one with an inside lip around it, has made all the difference. The cloth stays in place, and as a result, I cruised with this little knight. The border is a Greek meander pattern. I found ideas online and in books and then drew them on the back of the cloth.
I need to investigate different ways of finishing these up.
