Punch Needle Tattoo Designs

Landauer. Nov. 2023. 128p. ISBN 9781639810369. pap. CRAFTS
Textile artist Buchanon presents readers with an easy-to-follow guide to punch needle crafting with templates to help them get started. Punch needling is similar to embroidery, but instead of stitching the fabric, the thread is punched through the fabric with a punch needle device. It works a bit like a sewing machine, which makes the looped (or sometimes flat) stitches easier to administer onto the fabric than classic embroidery. The book details the different materials that beginners should buy, discusses the types of frames or hoops that crafters will use for various projects, and gives tips on how to sew fraying monks cloth, which is one of the most popular fabrics to work with for this type of technique. Clear images take readers on a visual tour through every step of the process—from threading a punch hook needle, creating a custom frame, and finishing the project. Readers will learn to make a variety of items, including coasters, stool covers, keychains, pins, and more.
VERDICT An easy-to-follow guide that is sure to excite both aspiring and experienced crafters.
