Design Transfer Net

 Design Transfer Net

1. Draw your design onto paper lay the net over design/pattern trace over it with a marker pen

2. Remove net and place on your foundation hessian, monks cloth, linen

3. Draw over your net patter and remove the next and your pattern is ready to hook punch or proddy

4. The net has an adhesive back so it sits firmly on the paper and material no ned to pin or tape and you can keep your pattern and use it multiple times



 Many years ago I made some small pieces and put them onto frames but there was little interest at the time. I think we were all busy making rugs!.  In 2017 I made some more 8"x8" pieces and put them on frames and sold a few but again not much interest. Over the past couple of years small projects have become so much more popular and now everyone is wanting to frame there art work. You can Hook, Punch and Proddy or mix your techniques. I quite like my pieces to cover the whole frame but then I do rather like the Beach Huts with the frame showing.

The top piece with Beach Huts was punched with yarn and yarn roving onto Monks Cloth (all available from my NuMonday shop I left the frame white but you can paint the frame any colour you choose.

Hooked with hand dyed chunky yarn into hessian. I frayed the edge and put it onto the frame that I had coloured


Hooked with Hand dyed Yarn Roving it is fabulous to both hook and punch with I also added some hand dyed chunky yarn too. Hooked into hessian and framed.
