I’ve finally tackled my silly fear of Punch Needle kits and boy am I glad I did. It’s actually really easy and quite fun. I’m so pleased with my little creation. Plus, I have an extra kit to give to one of you as well!

Punch Needle Kit review from Jessie At Home - kit and tool

When I was a little girl my mother and I ordered a punch needle set from a TV commercial. I tried so hard to make that thing work and just couldn’t get it. I have no idea if I was doing something wrong or if it was the tool, but I’ve steered clear of punch needles ever since.

So you can imagine my reticence when I was asked to try out this kit. However, I have made several crafts from Design Works Crafts kits in the past, and they have always been great. So I decided I’d give it a go.

Punch Needle Kit review from Jessie At Home - kit contents

The kit came complete with everything needed to create the adorable little fox. The only supply I needed to provide was a pair of scissors. The directions were very clear and easy to follow.

Punch Needle Kit review from Jessie At Home - getting started

Punch needle is worked from the back, so the pattern is printed in reverse on the fabric. I started with the black when I made my fox. I was surprised how quick it went. The black took less than 15 minutes.

Here it is all done. This is the back of the work. I learned a few important things:
Be sure that the thread coming out of the top of the needle is hanging loose. If it catches on anything the stitches will pull out.
Clip the ends close each time you finish a piece of thread so you don’t accidentally punch the end through the other side.
Flip the piece over and check it out when you think you are done with a section to see if there are any sparse parts. It’s easy to fill them in if there are, just punch in a few more loops.

Once all done, you have to take the piece out of the hoop, flip it over, and put it back in so the front is showing.
