Punch Needle and Hand Dyed Cotton Chenille Yarns

Hand dyed Cotton Chenille
Over the years I have been experimenting with different types of yarns and other fiber products.  Here are the latest results of dyeing off - white cotton chenille yarn.  I am most happy with the latest outcome of the dyeing process and how beautifully it took the dye and punched needled. 
Used one of my original bear patterns ( once again) and transferred it onto 100 percent cotton monks cloth.  I think the photo's below will show what a awesome child's rug it made. This rug measure about 27 inches by 40 inches. I have also made some smaller rugs as well and all are wonderfully soft, as well as thick and fluffy.  I might add washed up beautifully. 
Enjoy and until then
Have a Magic Day.

I really like how the yarn came out and the bear rug, that is so fun. I love the idea of punching yarn, but need to figure out a frame so I can do larger rugs for the house.

Thank you much! I find Cheap Archeage Gold your work rather refreshing...I can almost hear the Archeage Gold water splashing, birds chirping, and the fishing reel whipping out line...and that Buy RS Gold "plunk" when it goes in the Buy Archeage Gold stream! Be Blessed.
