Tulip Rug - 1 hour

by brae  

I have my floss wound on bobbins and the pattern transferred to my fabric.  I also adjusted the blue tip on the needle to make a shorter stitch.  The Tulip Rug has so much detail, that I thought a shorter pile would work better.

It looks cleaner on the back since punchneedle doesn't take true shape until you have larger areas filled in.  It's slower going since there is so much detail and you need to turn the hoop as you work.

Even with this small amount done, I am loving the colors together.  :D

I can see it is going to look fabulous but what a lot of small areas. I am loving the design and the colours. So looking forward to seeing it when a bigger area is done. I noticed I had a punch needle a while ago yet I can't even remember buying it! I think I will start with something small like a cushion or a tiny bath mat.

I didn't know this technique before and I'm really impressed! I will look for the punch-needle here in Italy and give it a try. Thank you for your exhaustive tutorial :) Ersilia

What an amazing pattern! I tried to get a punch needle to work when I was a young girl. Could never seen to get it to leave the loop. I should look up instructions again now that the Internet has been invented. Ha!
