My first punch needle project


Have you heard of punch needle embroidery? I discovered this exciting craft while going through my grandma's crafting supplies and I instantly fell in love. I love the primitive folk-art style. This is my very first one (don't look too close!). The piece measures 2 x 3 3/4" and I glued it onto an aged shipping tag with some of my grandma's buttons :)

It looks fabulous, even though I haven't the faintest idea what punch needle embroidery is.

I always wanted to try this. You did a great job! I love the primitive pattern and never would have thought to add something like this to a tag. It is so cute!

This is great, I bought a box of punch embroidery stuff from e bay a few years ago but as there were no instructions couldn't figure how to use it lol... love your tag Tami x
