Over the weekend I learned about this great blog post from Judy Heim. It gives you step-by-step instructions for printing a needlepoint canvas on you inkjet printer. (scroll down past the copyright notice to get the instructions.
I tried doing this several years ago, with MUCH less than stellar results. The papers I used often blocked holed and left a plastic film on the canvas. I did finally have good results when I took my design to a printer who transferred images onto mugs and such and who was a stitcher herself. The store closed and so I’m left with thinking about doing this on my own.
The post goes into great detail about how to choose your image, scanning it, sizing it and preparing the canvas (including how to work with an image which is larger than 8.5 x 11.
Next there are instructions with lots of helpful tips on getting the image onto canvas, and finally great instructions on how to set the image.
I’m ready to try this myself.
