Experientei punch needle pela primeira vez!
Trying punch needle for the first time!
I spent a few days away from home and, while practicing my social distancing that greatly limits our activities, I decided to take a small project with me that I could work on while I was away. I wanted to try the highly acclaimed potential of the “punch needle” that I had already bought a few months ago! As in the case of other projects in this confinement period, I did not buy anything special. I just searched my stash and chose a handful of materials to use in a small 10cm hoop. I was inspired by Patrícia Brissos‘ lions and to add my personal touch! The result was a small sleeping lion that I “combed” using the punch needle to its maximum length, in order to create small rings. I just had to add a few more expressive stiches in coordinated colors and, after only a few hours, my little project was ready!
From this first experience, other ideas emerged that I really wanted to try: new design, new wool! This time I made the Lion King, with a more solemn mane that highlights his golden crown.
