Valentine Punch Needle~

"Bluebird of Happiness" copyright 2018 Michelle L. Palmer

I have written two new punch needle patterns!
One is a free gift~ to thank you for sharing this wonderful
art journey with me! We have reached another milestone with our
Etsy shop and couldn't do it without all of you~

"Woolen Valentine" copyright 2018 Michelle L. Palmer

Our little woolen friend is the free pattern!
All of the pages & directions are here for your private use.

I have my finished heart hanging from a cupboard door handle.

Backed with a coordinating wool.
I used narrow strip of wool, twisted & stitched into place with floss.

The paper pattern with my color choices~
I can't wait to see what colors you design with!
This can be enlarged for a hooked wool piece or applique!

I trimmed my weavers cloth and then snipped the edges as seen above.
Careful to not cut too close to your loops.
With my finished work face down on a plush hand towel~
I steam pressed the weavers cloth to the back.
Loops are protected by the plush towel.

I use tracing paper to make a pattern for the backing.
Trace the heart from the paper pattern to cut your pattern.

You could add a little pocket to hold a note~
You could stitch a sweet message~

Thank you again~
Hope your February is filled with happiness & love!

Thank you Michelle! I love your designs. I have a few of your patterns that I have not punched yet but I did finish the bees in the clover and just love it. Thank you once again.
