Punch Needle Embroidery for Beginners
Punch needle embroidery is a simple technique that involves nothing more than a punch needle like a normal sewing needle but with a handle and an aperture at the tip needle and can be used on any fabric using either yarn or thread. The easy-to-learn technique and repetitive action makes beautifully textured, soft to the touch projects from wall hangings and cushions to children's toys, bags and purses that can be worked up quickly and easily with minimal effort Author Lucy Davidson's imaginative designs are stunning, and will appeal to anyone with an eye for clean, modern design. All the techniques you need 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 color combinations. There are then 12 projects to try, all accompanied by charts, written instructions and beautiful photographs of the finished pieces.
