Punch needle embroidery is an old-school needlecraft that’s perfect for beginners. Start with my post on punch needle basics for a step-by-step introduction to punch needle for beginners.
I’ve been cleaning out my craft room and slimming down on my collection of random hobbies. Punch needle is definitely one of the ones that I’m keeping.
Even though my thread collection is out of control I can easily store my punch needle, threader & hoop in a shoe box. You can’t say that for a lot of hobbies!
I also love how fast it can be, especially small projects that can be completed in a day. As a scatterbrained crafter, having a quick project from start to finish really makes you feel good.
One of my favorite things about punch needle is the flexibility. You don’t really need a pattern.
But if you aren’t quite ready to jump in and freehand a masterpiece a punch needle pattern is a great way to get started.
As much as I love the primitive style I wanted to make things with a more modern look. If that sounds like something you’re interested in check out my punch needle embroidery pattern shop & sign up for my punch needle newsletter to stay in the loop!
I also have several free punch needle patterns available to download as printable PDFs.
