I’m excited to share that my punch needle bunny pattern and kit are now available in the shop! Perfect for beginners, this bunny is super-simple to make and gives you the opportunity to practice making flat stitches, loop stitches (for that sweet, fluffy-bunny face) and adding small details like the nose, cheeks and eyes. This bunny looks adorable in a nursery or kid’s room, and makes a thoughtful gift for a crafty new mom.
The 15-page PDF pattern includes step-by-step written instructions and photos for completing your bunny, plus pattern templates for use with a square or round frame. I’ve also included a section on where to buy supplies to help you get started. Shop the PDF pattern here.
Since I know how time-consuming gathering supplies can be, I’ve also created punch needle kits with everything you need to make your own bunny wall art. The kit includes an Oxford punch needle, stretcher bar frame, roving yarn, plus beads, floss and a sewing needle to make your bunny’s eyes. You’ll also receive PDF copies of my ebook Drawing with Yarn: A Beginner’s Guide to Punch Needle and instructions for completing your bunny. Shop the punch needle bunny kit here.

Back in August, an editor at the U.K. magazine Mollie Makes emailed me to ask if I would be interested in designing and making a trio of punch needle animal stuffies for their December 2019 cover. I’ll admit I was intimidated- the deadline was tight considering my kids were still home with me for summer break, and I had more than a bit of performance anxiety (what if they’re just “meh” about the final product?). In the end I said yes, and I’m so thrilled with how this project turned out!

This month I was featured in an article by Chatelaine Magazine on bringing punch needle into your home décor. The article touches on the current trend of punch needle, its history, and profiles a number of talented punch needle artists selling patterns, supplies, and finished work. Writer Iris Benaroia interviewed me for the article and included a great little write-up of me and my work. I love the quote she included of me describing punch needle as “the least frustrating craft I’ve ever tried”. Perfectly summed up!
