Punch Needle Kits with Trendy Designs & Colors

We have three new Punch Needle Kits to share with you today.  These contemporary punch needle kits from Dimensions feature trendy new designs & updated colors you won't want to miss.  You'll find them in the Punch Needle Kits section of the store!

Your finished miniature punch needle art will look great matted & framed for home decor.  Smaller designs are often applied as creative embellishments to other textile items, such as a canvas tote bag.

The Fancy Chick Punch Needle Kit makes it easy for you to stitch this sweet spotted bird.  Kit includes cotton embroidery thread, white cotton fabric, and instructions.

The thread is pre-sorted and organized for you!  Each of the thread colors is clearly identified with a color code number.

You'll know which color to use by following the design chart & color key included with the instructions.

The Nature Collage Punch Needle Kit features artistic nature designs created using natural earth tone thread colors.  The finished design is 8 inches by 10 inches.

The design is pre-printed in reverse on the back side of the fabric, which is the working side of the fabric when doing punch needle.

To push the thread down through the fabric, you'll need a punch tool specifically designed to hold 3 strands of embroidery thread.

Dimensions offers an affordable 3-strand Punch Needle Tool & Threader that's easy to use.

The Dots & Blooms Punch Needle Kit is a creative floral design that is sure to "grow a little happiness" wherever it's displayed.

You'll need an embroidery hoop to hold the fabric taut while punching.  The size of the hoop depends on the size of the design you're stitching.

Instructions provide step-by-step guidance, including sections on preparing the fabric, threading the needle, and punch needle basics.

You'll learn how to use your punch tool to form small loops on the front side of the fabric.  A helpful list of punch needle tips is included.  It's a good idea to read through the instructions before you start.
