Flower and Flamingos Needlepoint E-book Cover

By Jeanne Becker for Lee's Needle Art

Lee's Needle Art offers needlepoint painted canvases AND the leather goods for finishing your projects. Here we feature one of Lee's designs, a tropical scene brought to sparkling life with Kreinik metallic threads against a rich backdrop of silk stitches. The project is small so it stitches up quickly and makes a great gift or personal accessory - perfect for some of the new e-book readers.

FINISHING:

Block canvas if necessary to restore shape.
 

  1. Cut off excess selvage, leaving 2 canvas threads.
  2. Carefully remove the paper from the adhesive layer. Place the stitched needlepoint into the sticky layer. Make the fine adjustments if necessary and glue down edge of the opening to the needlepoint selvage. A plastic knife or popsicle stick is a handy way to apply the glue. Just don't apply too much glue.
