Welcome Sign Doorknob Hanger in Needlepoint-Plastic Canvas

Here's my latest weekend project, a little doorknob hanger made from a pattern in my mom's craft cabinet. Actually, it's not even a pattern--just the cover from a kit that was probably used by my grandma in the 1980's.

I made it with Lion Brand Suede yarn, which has a chenille-y texture that feels rich and velvety. This project coordinates with the card box I put up a few posts ago.


I finished it off using iron-on fusible webbing to affix felt to hide the back. This'll strengthen it and help it to last longer as well.


Here's the image I had to use as a pattern. You can click on the photo to enlarge it if you'd like to print. I'll try to share more patterns in the future.
