Wool Chair Pad

I finished a punch needle, wool, chair pad this week.


The project started as another raw fleece that I was given.


I cleaned, combed, spun the wool, and dyed it,


Punch needle is worked from the back with a special tool.


I drew the design on a piece of 22 count Hardanger fabric that I had - it worked well (I think punch needle is generally worked on Monk's Cloth or a linen fabric).


When the work was all done I steamed the piece and pinned it out to block it. To finish the chair pad I used the serger to finish off the edge of the fabric about 1.5inches from the punch needle, pressed the fabric to the wrong side and then whip stitched it in place.


This is the first time that I have done this type of punch needle, it was really enjoyable and worked out well.


The wool makes a nice, soft chair pad (I even started another one with the leftover yarn).
