Overview

Needle punch 12 gorgeous accessories for you and your home with just 9 colors.

Punch needle embroidery is back! It's 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. It can be used on any fabric using either yarn or thread, and creates a textured, raised finish that's soft to the touch and beautiful to look at.

The easy-to-learn technique and repetitive action makes this the perfect, mindful pursuit, and projects from wall hangings and cushions to children's toys, bags and purses 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 colour combinations. There are then 12 projects to try, all accompanied by charts, written instructions and beautiful photographs of the finished pieces.
