Working on some finishings

Since we are under a Stay At Home order in Minnesota I have been working on finishing some punch needle designs.

The smaller flower on the left – I glued a patterned scrapbook paper sheet to a piece of light cardboard then glued the punch needled flower to the cardboard. I added a length of wire for a hanger.

The larger flower on the right – I whipped strips of wool to the edge. I matched the color of the wool strips to the sky and ground. I used the same color DMC floss to whip the wool strip as I used to punch the sky and ground with, using all 6 strand of floss.

On both pieces I ran a line of Fray Check along the outside of the punched loops before trimming the weavers cloth backing away.
