Another New Punch Needle Project... "Folk Art Bird Hanging Bag "


Ok...so I have to say I really like the look of this with the brown, tan and blues. I sewed it to a piece of really old blue ticking fabric from an old mattress and stained it slightly.
I took the awsome advice of some wise folks and used 6 strands...Went much faster than the 3 strands on the bigger beeskep piece...The design is from my Summer Doodle Booklet Volume 1 .
I want to keep it but I really need to list on Ebay...I need my moving money..I'm excited to be moving in a few weeks, but I want to do a few things ion the new house first.... :)

Great, Robin! I'm glad you didn't give up on PN. The bird pattern is nice and I love applied to the bag.
Yes, the 6 strand saved me from quitting, too.
Good luck with your moving plans...Susie

Good Morning Robin Sweetie...
I found your beautiful blog home while blog hopping this morning. I love all your punch needle projects. I have never tried this craft but my goodness you have made some very beautiful projects here. Your dolls are just exquisite, and I so adore the pillows. I think your sunflower project would make a precious pillow sitting on a chair or hanging in a dining room or kitchen. Just precious. Thank you for sharing with me today.

Please stop by and say hi. I would be so honored if you signed up to follow my blog as well. Country hugs...Sherry

I was using 6 strands and someone told me that was wrong, that I should only be using 3.
I'm with you on getting it filled faster! Especially for large areas like backgrounds.
