WIP Wednesday – Hummingbird Punch Needle Kit

IMG_7173I got my ‘rug yarn punch needle’ yesterday. So, I got busy last night and prepared my ‘Hummingbird Punch Needle Kit’ to be worked on…
(because we all know that a crafter can’t have too many projects going on at the same time. 😉 )

I figure it’s going to take me awhile to make the piece. I still have to learn to punch evenly. The finished size of it is supposed to be about 12 x 12 inches. I’m planning on trying to make a throw pillow out of it.

I’ll post updates as I go along.

But for today, this first post is the set up and preparation for punching. 😉

IMG_7125Here’s all the stuff in the kit
along with my new punch needle.

IMG_7136The pre-printed fabric square is too small
for my huge embroidery hoop.

IMG_7152I sewed strips of fabric on the fabric square and
made a border so it would fit my embroidery hoop.

IMG_7163I put masking tape around the
edge of the fabric so it wouldn’t fray.

IMG_7167I set the Hummingbird square in my hoop
and it now the piece is ready to be worked.

Wish me luck on learning to do
this punch needle craft.


I’m wishing you all a pleasant rest of the week.

  1. I’m sure you’ll do a wonderful job on working this design. I’ve used extra fabric around my doll quilts to make them fit a circular hoop.

    E.C. I don’t know how to become a follower of your blog. Am I overlooking something?


    • Thanks Charlotte
      I learned about temporary borders for embroidery hoops when I was in the 7th grade. Oh the early years of embroidery. There’s no telling how many palm trees and apples and flowers and smiley faces I embroidered in the early 70’s. Gosh we were so cool. lol

      Oops sorry about that. I forgot to put a Subscription follow box in my sidebar. So I just added it. If you sign up and I configured it right, hopefully you’ll received updates by email.
      Thanks so much
