Fairy of Good Housework




Here is some punch embroidery I started a while back and I need to get back to it and finish! It's a fun way to embroider with DMC floss. You can buy kits but, I got bored with that and thought I'd just draw on a high thread count cotton. I think I'll just frame this or maybe make a pillow? Not sure yet!

Sweet! Is it all French Knots??

Thanks! Nope, it's a different type of embroidery called needle punch. There's a special tool used to punch through the fabric and it sort of looks like a big syringe you run the floss through. (you can get needle punch at any craft/sewing store - like JoAnne's).
