Needlepoint Project

Needlepoint kits can be rather expensive; however after a trip to A.C. Moore I found that I could create my own designs.  By buying the needlepoint canvas, yarns, and needles you can create all different projects for a quarter of the price.  You start with a blank canvas, which means that you can create personalized designs.  But beware, needlepointing your own designs is harder than you think.  It takes time and patience to try to get the designs to come out how you want them too.  I recently finished a needlepoint barrett and started working on a headband.  What are some of your design ideas?
