Anyway - today I'm going to talk about a relatively new (to me) craft. I've been cross stitching for a few months, and every time I went to buy cross stitch supplies the punch needle supplies caught my eye. I kept telling myself (and anyone who was with me) that I thought punch needle looked interesting and I wanted to try it. Finally a few weeks ago I did pick up punch needle with in the intention of making a birthday gift for a friend. I immediately liked it and got hooked. Unfortunately, I ran out of two of the different colors of the thread, and with the birthday fast approaching, I had to buy a different kit.
The other kit I bought was smaller, and seeing how it was my second punch needle project the finished product was a lot nicer looking. A few days later I did another punch needle, this time I sketched it myself rather than purchased a kit.
This is the first one I made, from the kit "Owl Always Be Your Friend" by Dimensions.
The second, better looking punch needle kit was "Better Latte Than Never" also by Dimensions (both kits were supposed to have lettering on them, but I thought it was lame).
And finally, here is the one of my own creation - Captain Hammer's logo! It was really fast and easy, and done in just a few hours. Best of all, I listed it on my Etsy shop and it sold within about 10 minutes (thanks to a certain twitter friend). I'm quite proud of it!
I'm really loving punch needle, and hopefully I can think of some ideas for cool punch needle projects. If you have any fun and simple ideas, feel free to clue me in!
