Punch Needle Tree DecorationsBy Liz Barraclough
Have you ever used your favourite Scheepjes yarns for punch needling? Liz Barraclough chose Scheepjes Sunkissed and Cotton 8 for her stripy Punch Needle Tree Decorations. These are lovely yarns to try your hand at this craft and create designs with a raised loopy texture that you can’t help but touch! Start with the simple tree shape, and as you become more confident, move on to the bauble, then the candy cane. Be sure to use a non-slip hoop and a suitable base fabric like 28 count DMC Evenweave Unifil.
