I made this hoop for a swap, my partner received today so it is now "safe" to post it as my entry.  Grin  It is needle punch and used lots and lots of embroidery floss.



Here is a close up of the face



I don't remember the size of the hoop, but here it is next to a can of soup so you can get an idea of how big it is.

WOW!  That is super cute!  And much bigger than I was imagining it.  You really must have used a lot of floss!  Excellent!

I started it on the 10th of November and just finished last Monday. I worked on it for a few hours almost every day, I love needle punch but it is a slow process!  Cheesy

I got the punch tool and threaders at Jo Anne's. They are the only place I've been able to find the threaders, they eventually break after a lot of use but I think they are between $4 and $6 for a pack of 2. (Not too sure because I always have coupons  Cheesy  )

Needle punch is so cute but I doubt I could find the patience for it.

Beautiful. I love the idea of using embroidery floss for needle punch. It gives a lovely pile effect.  Any idea how many skeins you used?

I want to try this with maybe felt and floss. I don't have the patience for punching. But it is SO cute! I might have to make it for next year's Dia de los Muertos. My daughter and I are 'cat people'.  Or a turkey one for Turkey Day. Just to be silly. ^_^

I believe I used around 8-10 skeins of black, the rest I'm not sure, it was a lot total though.  Cheesy


A DOTD turkey would be awesome Maple Girl!

Did you make the design up yourself or find it somewhere? I dig it a lot too btw. Great craftsmanship.
