Punch Needle Fobs may be used for a necklace or ornament.
These are two little punches what I'm calling fobs they can be used for a necklace as I've done or turned into a ornament for a tree or hang them from a cupboard handle for a unexpected decoration.
The first are two pumpkins for a fall and the second is for all you kitty lovers out there.
Both come in the same Pattern and are now available in my Etsy Cottage store!
The Pumpkins measure 1 1/4" x 1 1/2"
The cat measures 1 3/4" 1 1/2"
They are punched using one & three strand of DMC floss. The pumpkins background is punched using Valdani #12 perle cotton, 100% Colorfast Hand-dyed threads.
They do not come with instructions for the finished piece.
The Pumpkins I've used:
A leather strap
a small piece of broken wicker from an old bait basket
wool backing sewn by hand and blanket stitched on the edge
a bead of coordinating color
small metal beads
and a old clock gear.
The Cat I've used:
Silver wire stitched to the wool on the inside.
A a variety of beads to compliment the punch.
Wool backing blanket stitched on the edge.

It's a fairly chilly day in Pittsburgh today.
So I'm settling in to work on some new punch designs for Christmas
and a bit of hooking.
Have a wonderful day, be creative!
