Punch Needle Embroidery for Beginners
Punch needle is a simple technique inspired by rug hooking that involves nothing more than a punch needle too and some yarn. It creates a textured, raised finish that's soft to the touch and beautiful to look at.
The easy-to-learn technique and repetitive action makes this the perfect, mindful pursuit, and projects from wall hangings and cushions to children's toys, bags and purses can be worked up quickly and easily with minimal effort.
Author Lucy Davidson's imaginative designs are very cute and will appeal to anyone with an eye for clean, modern design. Her techniques are described at the start of the book, with information on how to hold the needle, how to start and finish a thread and how to achieve a variety of interesting textures and colour combinations. There are then 12 projects to try, all accompanied by charts, written instructions, a full-size template and beautiful photographs of the finished pieces.
