You, Me & the Sea*- Punch Needle Pattern/Optional thread kit
You, Me & the Sea Punch Needle Pattern - This wonderful seahorse pattern was created using a technique that the background is a piece of wool fabric. This was done by placing the wool fabric over the blank side of the weaver's cloth fabric and then using a hoop. The Hoop worked better than using a gripper frame to hold both pieces of fabric "drum-tight". I increased my thread length to compensate for the wool thickness and punched thru both pieces of fabric. This is an option for you or you can use the O-31 teal-ish blue Valdani as your background thread.
YOU, ME, & THE SEA: Pattern size 6 1/4 x 8 1/4
The Paper or Drawn on weavers cloth patternsincludes the full-color pattern thread placement guide, which details exactly where each thread color is used throughout the design, along with the thread length adjustments used in the design and the custom thread list used to create this pattern.

*Please Note: Save by purchasing thread kit with the pattern. This is a better overall value than purchasing separately.

TheNEWDMC Floss & Valdani Thread colors codeswill be included on a separate sheet, along with the formula & information needed to help estimate the amount of DMC floss needed to complete this pattern.
For thePaper Patterns, I recommendthat you use a small lightbox and Micron 05 Archival Ink Pen to trace your patterns onto your weaver's cloth fabric.
