I just finished this needle punch and now all I need to do is stitch it onto a nice linen pillow.

actually it was a photograph of a gate that I want someone to build for me and I added the crow.
I took care of their 5 cats for a week and a half and he is making the gate for me. I just love it and am going to put in in my garden.

But...to be able to turn a photograph into a needle punch is just amazing...how do you do that. Is there a way to enlarge the photograph and transfer over to canvas?

What I do is trace the main part onto some tracing paper then go over it with a transfer pen. When you put it on the cloth it is backwards but when you turn it over to the other side it is rightside .
You have to make up your own color scheme and decide what is important to add and what to delete, in other words the details are up to you. I did the same with this one.

Here is the beginning of the crow sitting on the gate. I traced the picture onto tracing paper then deleted what I didn't want to use and then I went over all the picture with a transfer pen then ironed it onto the fabric. Voila, that's all there is to it.

If you decide you want to try it I have several punch needles and would be happy to loan you one to see if it is something you like.
