A lesson on creating your own Punch Needle pattern:

Creating your own design can be tricky at times, especially when there are words and numbers involved.  The pattern side is the BACK SIDE of your finished piece.  Therefore, when using words and numbers, you need to remember that your finished piece will be a mirror image of what your pattern is.  I drew up my own pattern, forgetting that my finished piece would be a mirror image.  As you can see by the pictures, I wrote HALLOWEEN the correct way…or so I thought.  It was the wrong way since it would be the opposite on the FRONT SIDE. 

This my friends, is actually how it should look!!  Notice how NEEWOLLAH is now written on the pattern.  When you flip over your finished piece, the wording will now be correct.

Happy Punching and thanks for stopping by.

As I sat in my backyard, I peacefully listened to this beautiful bluebird’s song.  Gazing at this handsome, plump, vibrant bird, I have created this sweet Harvest Bluebird ornament, so I may enjoy him all year long.

My 9 year old niece, Thalia, wanted to create her very own punch needle design.  She decided that Chesney, my 13 year old Chihuahua, would make a great model.  Thalia drew up her design and together we created this wonderful little pillow.  I'm one very proud aunt!! xo
