A basket with punch needle embroidered designs
Decorate a wicker seagrass basket with punch needle embroidered designs. Draw the design onto the basket using a pencil and embroider from the inside and on the outside of the basket.
How to do it
Draw the design onto the basket using a pencil. Embroider a 5 cm wide border starting 1 cm from the bottom of the basket and embroider circles measuring 2 cm and 5 cm in diameter. Embroider four of each distributed evenly on the top half of the basket.
Embroider the circles from the inside of the basket adjusting the needle to setting "C". Embroider the outer edge of the circles and then fill in the middle. Keep a 0.5 cm gap between the stitches.
Embroider the border from the outside of the basket, adjusting the needle to setting "D". Keep a gap of approx. 1 cm between the stitches.
Secure the ends and trim.
Embroider the needle punched design with decoupage lacquer for textiles on the inside of the basket in order to fix the woollen yarn ends.
