Punch Needle Patterns
Punch needle is sometimes known as Russian needlepoint or embroidery. The design is actually worked from the back, and raised loops are formed on the front of the fabric, creating a design. It is simple, portable, and addictive! For the samples seen in the photos, I have used an Igolochkoy brand needle. While I do not currently carry them on this site, you can find them here. There are also other brands of needles on the market.
The patterns use inexpensive DMC embroidery thread and contain simple directions for mixing thread colors to achieve the vintage look of hand dyed threads. Patterns also contain an idea sheet for finishing your completed design into a wall hanging, pillow and more.
