Cord Finish The Moon's Mistress

 Hello everyone! I wanted to show you how I finished The Moon's Mistress. It looks like I used the cord finish, but I actually made my monk's cloth into my "cord".
This is what it looks like off the frame. I've already done the zig-zag stitch around it with my sewing machine. You can also use a serger, or fray prevention glue. Now I'm going to cut all the way around leaving 2 inches of monk's cloth.
 Now, just roll your monk's cloth and stitch in place. I roll a little ahead and use a pin to hold it in place while I stitch. You could do this and your edging at the same time, but I prefer doing them separately.

 Just keep going all the way around until your finished, then cut out your wool backing. I cover my whole back in wool, and roll it up over the sides.
 Just start rolling it up and stitching in place, cover your "cording".
 Just continue to do so all the way around.



 This is what the back of your piece looks like.
This is what your edging will look like completely finished! You will find a link to The Moon's Mistress in my shops below. If you have any questions or need anything else, please let me know. Thanks for dropping by!

Finishing Pumpkins Eve

 Hello everyone! I've had questions about finishing so I thought I would show you how I finished Pumpkins Eve. At this point, I've already pulled it off my frame. I've zig-zag stitched it with my sewing machine, then cut the monk's cloth 1 inch all the way around. Before you do that, please zigzag it, serge it, or use some kind of fray prevention on your monk's cloth!
Fold all of your monk's cloth under and stitch it in place.
  I covered the whole back of my piece and left enough to fold up over the edges. 
 I start stitching the wool backing up over the edge and stitch in place. As you can see, I only cover the monk's cloth, I don't bring it the rest of the way up to the top of my loops.
 Just turn and keep going until each side is covered.
Then done! I usually only do this on small pieces, it's a cute easy way to finish a piece off. You will find the link to Pumpkins Eves in my shops below. If you have any questions or need anything, feel free to email me anytime, Thank for dropping by!

Rug Hooking Pattern & Red Dot Tracing Fabric

Hello everyone! I've just added my first rug hooking to my Etsy shop. Don't worry punch needlers', I couldn't give up punch needle even if I wanted to, (and I don't). I'll be carrying both punch needle and rug hooking patterns. 

There will be 2 listings for each rug hooking pattern. The 1st listing is for the PDF digital download that you can download instantly. The 2nd is a mailed pattern with the option to have it traced on red dot tracing fabric, in the drop-down menu. I've had some questions about the red dot tracing fabric, so I thought I would show you how this transfer fabric works. When you get your pattern in the mail, the picture will already be drawn on the transfer fabric.
This is what it looks like, you can buy it by the yard. I put it on something dark blue so you could see how thin it is.
I just tape it over the pattern I'm wanting to transfer. Remember, this will already be done for you, I just wanted to show you how it worked from the beginning to the end.
I trace it on with a Sharpie.
All traced, there's a closeup below. This is what it will look like when it comes in the mail if you choose that option.
Now, you just lay it on top of your monk's cloth or linen, and just trace over the pattern with a Sharpie.
Nice and easy, no flipping the pattern over or needing a light source to transfer the pattern. Below are the links to Seeing Stars in my Etsy shop, both the PDF digital pattern and the mailed patter. If you have any questions, I'm just an email away, thanks for dropping by!!!

Tulips & Eggs Punch Needle Pattern

 Hello everyone! I've just added Tulips & Eggs punch needle pattern to my Etsy shop and The Pattern Cupboard, the links are below. You can download them instantly in both shops. When finished, it measures 7 1/2" tall and 5 1/4" wide. I finished mine by lightly stuffing, adding to a rusty bed spring with a crinkled and grungy bow. The pattern comes with complete instructions, supply list, color photo, traceable drawing. and color instructions. It was a really fun punch. Now, I'm not always great about doing a lot of blog posts. Usually, I only do them when I have a new pattern out, but if you want to keep up with me, I'm a little bit better about posting on Instagram. It's so easy to do from my phone, I've added that link below. Until next time!
