Canvas Blocking/Needlepoint

Canvas Blocking

After a needlepoint is completed by the client, it has to be blocked and shaped.  Here’s one nailed to the board!  If you make a needlepoint canvas, remember that 2-3 rows will be taken up in the seam so make sure to add more rows around the outside!

 

This bag was blocked and shaped.  I added a lining and zipper to complete it for a bar mitzvah boy.

And one more bag:

These are atarot that were needlepointed by the customer.  They were also blocked & steamed before attaching to the tallit.
