Fiber arts have been trending for the last few years, from wall weavings to embroidered pieces for hanging and for gifting! Another fun new art we are seeing a lot of recently is punch needle embroidery! You can use both embroidery floss or yarn for this craft; each width uses a different sized punch tool. Through the punching motion, you create loops on the opposite side of the fabric that you are working on, all held in place by the tension of the fabric.
We’ll be hosting an Intro to Punch Needle class at NoDa Brewing Company with a bit of a sassy fall flair, but you can also bring your own ideas with you!
We decided to round up a few punch needle pieces we love to give you some inspiration on what you can do! There’s a wide variety of things your can make once you get the hang of punch needle!
Big graphic letters like these make a great statement! We love this piece from My Pink Lemonade! What would yours say?
This adorable paw print set from MissKatiuska is a fun way to combine punch needle with basic embroidery (just like our class)!
If you choose a solid design, you can turn your punch needle embroidery into a fantastic patch, like this one from Think, Make, Share!
It might take you a little while to make a pillow, but how cool is this one from Lisa Congdon? (We probably wouldn’t even lean on it!)
Officially obsessed with this purse from Chaumiere Oiseau - you’d definitely stand out with this piece slung over your shoulder!
Like things a little more abstract? That’s ok! You can create fantastic, textured pieces like this one from French artist, Tissages De La Licorne just by changing the depth of your needle and mixing up your colors!
