Notice Narelle's orange ball sampler of how different the embroidery appears if it were a/ punched in a circle, or b/ punched back and forth in rows. The sock is in two colours, two rows of each colour worked in stripes. Teena's Teddy holding balloons could now be cut out and used as an appliqué.
Dorothy's Teddy is one of the early projects I had students make. Thought you may be also interested to see the back as well as the front. Punchneedle Embroidery is worked from the back of the fabric.
