Coffee & espresso drinkers will enjoy the Cup of Java Punch Needle Kit from Dimensions, shown here with swirling steam rising from colorful cups of the hot beverage. Kit includes cotton embroidery thread, printed foundation fabric, and easy instructions.

In punch needle embroidery, small loops are formed to create colorful designs. With Dimensions punch needle kits, there's no need to transfer patterns - the back side of the fabric is preprinted with the outline of the design, so you're ready to start stitching - right out of the box!

The Kitty in Window Punch Needle Kit is perfect for cat lovers! You'll need an embroidery hoop to hold the fabric taut while punching. Select an embroidery hoop diameter that fits the entire punch needle design.

The stitches are worked from the back of the fabric using a punch needle tool. If you're a beginner, you'll need to spend a little time upfront learning how to thread your punch tool. Threaders and threading instructions are provided with the punch needle tool.

The Sweet Dream Lamb Punch Needle Kit is a great choice for baby's nursery!

Step-by-step instructions for completing your punch needle project are included with the kit. You'll learn to use your punch needle tool to create small loops on the front of the fabric.

Using your punch needle tool takes some practice, but once you get started, you'll find your own rhythm.
