Finished Punch Needle

pcp 833

I finished my first needle punch! It was a lot of fun to do. Now I need to decide what I am going to put it on.  I’m ready to try another one!

How do you needle punchers out there display your finished projects?

  1. It's lovely! You may not have been working on wool, but you have been busy! I haven't done any needle punch, but my SIL displays hers on old cutting boards and boxes and it always looks lovely....

  7. I think it looks like you've been punching for a long time !! Wow, what a sweet piece and you did a super job on it !!
    I think it would look great on an old bread board, or an old flat or curved grater....oh gosh so many ideas....it would look cute on the front of a neat old small book covered with Christmassy or just old looking calico and aged...then just stand it up on a mantel or shelf at Christmas time ....
    Come on now...let's see more !!...lol

  9. That is something I have never done, it is really cute though! You did a good job. Can you make them into pillows? Have a great weekend!
    Be blessed!

  10. Awesome job Miss Mindy!! I go MIA for a wee bit, and look at you go girl! That was one of my very first patterns I did as well - perhaps the 2nd or 3rd....and then I got hopelessly addicted to Brenda's designs and have done most of them at one time or another. You are doing an amazing job - yours certainly doesn't look like a beginner's project!

    As for finishing - hmmmm - I started out having most of mine professionally framed. Got too expensive; started framing them myself....(Many different techniques - all of which are explained in one of my favorite books by Barbara Kemp and Margaret Shaw ("Punchneedle Embroidery")....well worth the investment as it has many patterns in it and finishing techniques, as well as step-by-steps - just wished I had found it sooner....

    When I ran out of wall space, I started improvising and have put punch things everywhere - a favorite finish is making them into little pinkeeps and pillows (backing with wool or just plain cottons) - and I've put many on hornbooks; wool carders; butter paddles; boxes (papier mache and otherwise; plain old pieces of barn wood - with or without wool backings/mattes; made them into pockets....made them three-dimensional - really, your imagination is your only limit.....

    Punch on, Punch on.....Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
