Punch Neddle Kits
Do you have some experience with embroidery, or are at least willing to learn some of them?
Punch needle kits are the perfect way to start switching things up in your creative routine.
This option is an embroidery type that offers several similarities to rug hooking.
Instead of bringing the needle through the fabric, a special punch pushes the thread or yarn through it.
While you’re working, you’ll continue holding the punch needle above the “right” side of the material.
Punch needle kits are available at almost any craft store.
You can also find them at numerous online platforms, including Amazon and Etsy.
What Can I Make with a Punch Needle Kit?
You can make almost anything with a modern punch needle kit.
If you select a pattern to follow, you’ll get to use the traditional circle that becomes something you can display on a shelf or wall.
Some kits offer designs that let you create pillowcases.
You could turn the crafting time into a creative moment for placemats, table runners, or similar items.
Most punch needle kit designs feature landscapes or flowers, but you’ll notice the variety is quite impressive.
If you love the desert, why not create a sunset scene with a saguaro cactus?
Do you love dogs?
Several punch needle kits feature a specific breed so that you can honor your best friend through your work.
The corgi style is also undeniably cute!
You can produce mountain landscapes, ocean scenes, flowery fields, or whatever else you prefer.
If you don’t mind stepping away from the pattern, anything is possible with this crafting approach.
What Are the Results Like with These Kits?
Since the punch needle allows you to use thicker thread, you’ll create a raised embroidered look with your kit.
You can use any color or style of yarn for your project.
Although a little stitching or combination work might be necessary for some patterns, you’ll find that the process is as simple as knitting.
Several online patterns are available for those who’d rather buy the supplies.
