Nut Cracker in Russian Needlepunch

My daughter is starting her second project using this technique.

This will be for an art show at school in about a month. The last one she did won the last art contest she entered. The current project is for an un-jurored show, so it doesn't all have to be her own original designs. She won't be drafting her own pattern this time.

Since Christmas is around the corner she wanted to do a Nut Cracker. The first three steps of this project are done: fabric picked (wool gabardine), image decided upon, image transferred to fabric using a light table and a green permanent market. The punch work begins tomorrow. I think this time when I am teaching her I will have her play with different fibers, maybe wool for the hair and gold metallic thread for buttons and things like that, but she will have to decide as it is her project. Maybe she will work with playing with depth of the thread loop lengths for added texture. I will just let her see her options in supplies and techniques and she can go from there.


  1. Just looked in on your blog for the first time - and guess what I found another person who can make tatted lace - there's not that many of us about - I learned from a little old lady in the oldfolks home my mum worked in when I was 13 (many moons ago) - don't get the old shuttle out very often as I'm completely hooked on quilting now but it was nice to see a like minded soul

  2. Thanks for leaving a comment nice to have you stop by. yes I make tatted lace and a lot of other stuff. Both quilt projects and tatting travel well so I like that. I can always have something in my purse so if I get stuck somewhere I have something to do. Usually what is in my purse now days is crochet. I just have to many interestes to stick to just one, especially since I am trying to teach my children.
