"Feathered Folk" copyright 2018 Michelle L. Palmer My husband sketched a picture of a new bird at our feeder years (and years) ago. I have the sketched tucked in one of my journals & decided it would make the perfect hooked rug. I made the wool rug based on his little sketch and then this punch needle design.
Finish size is approx. 6.5" in diameter DMC Floss colors and details are written on paper pattern and written directions. You can enlarge the paper pattern for rug hooked projects.

*****NUMBER OF SKEINS needed varies by artist: Some artists punch with 3 strands of floss, some punch with 6 strands. I use DMC, several of my customers use Valdani. Every tool brand is different and loop lengths vary. Artists style varies. Some punch with tight rows, others prefer a very open and airy, long-looped finish. I do not list exact skein count and always encourage customers to purchase extra due to all of these variables.
"Painting with threads..." Punch needle is a nice excursion from my watercolor painting and design work. I am inspired to translate my original paintings into fiber art patterns! I originally planned to start a rug hooking hobby in 2011. When I went to purchase all of the tools and materials the shop owner could see the glazed look in my eyes. I knew I would enjoy it! I knew I could do it! However--- where would I store it all? My studio is small and already filled to the rafters with paints, fabrics, reference material... books, feathers, linens, shells, etc. (you know...) We walked around her charming shop and I saw a finished punch needle piece & fell head over heels for it! I was hooked! ;) The shop owner gathered the materials and sent me off. Two days later I was back at her door with a finished design. She asked me how I did it? I told her, "I simply painted with threads." Some of my designs are very detailed. I try to share how to simplify. If you have any questions please ask before purchasing~
Your finished design can be framed or added to a decorative box. It would be adorable made into a pillow. There are endless ideas & wonderful tutorials on the web that help us finish our punch needle treasures.
I love this pattern and the colors are wonderful
