How To Punch Needle

22690 ratings | 438904 views
Today I'm going to show you how to punch needle:) Huge thanks to today's sponsor 🙌🏻SKILLSHARE 🙌🏻 first 500 get 2 month free: http://skl.sh/shmoxd Alot of people had been tagging me and telling me to try out the Magic Embroidery Pen like that one.. But after reading some reviews and talking to some people, the ultra punch seemed like the best punch needle. I'll put the links to all the material a little lower here in the description:) The kit that I got came with an extra spring, 2 extra needle tips, and 2 of the threaders. First thing your going to do is take your threader and push it through the front of the punch needle so it pops out the back there. Then get your embroidery floss, make sure you have enough slack, and thread it though there on the back and pull it on through. On the tip of the punch needle there is like a flat part with a lil hole on it and the open part where you just threaded your floss through. Poke the threader though the front of the flat part with the lil hole.. thread the floss then pull it through. I just have this scrap cotton fabric. To put it on the hoop you put the fabric on top of the small/inner hoop, make sure your bigger hoop is all loose, push it on, and tighten it up. Make sure your fabric is nice and taut. I also have these clamps.. and they are just to help me film. they are not necessary. So now I thought I could start punching the needle... but.. I was having a hard time with it. Right here it looks like its beginning to work.. but if you look and see, you can tell I'm using my left hand under the fabric to grab the floss as I'm pushing it through.. which isn't how your supposed to do it. I thought maybe if I tried it on a thicker fabric that would hold the floss in place... but I was still cheating with my left hand.. Then I thought maybe if I made the needle a little bit longer.. maybe that would help... anddd..... nah.. When I saw the videos I thought you would be able to just punch it and it would stay.. but It just kept slipping out.. Until right here: I just didn't make the stitches as long and that seemed no keep them in place.. after some more experimenting I went back to the original cloth. There are better fabric out there for punch needle. Most people would use a weavers cloth. Witch has some stretch to it so it will hold the floss better and also won't tear as easily as your poking your needle in the fabric repetitively. but... this fabric seemed to work well enough for me. What I found out is you have to keep rotating your pen so its always facing the direction you're stitching; with the open part leading the way and the flat part where your floss is poking out leaving a tail. Another thing is you have to keep the needle really close to the fabric. What helped me was scraping the needle across the fabric as I went. eventually I got the feel of it and didn't need to scrap the fabric:) Now the only issue I have is how to keep the floss from just unzipping and falling out.. (cause its just a bunch of loops where you stitch) I'll figure that out later. I outlined the hoop on the fabric so I knew how big I could draw the design on the fabric:) Once I got it all sketch up I was ready to go After ending the first line, I just cut it and pull the floss through to the back just to keep it nice and clean. I didn't do that to all of them.. and just cleaned it up after I was all done. So to keep it from unzipping once you're all done, what I did was put an interfacing on the back. You put the shiny side face down on the back and iron it on.. hopefully that will work ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Eventually I used the iron on adhesive stuff as the interfacing. that seemed to hold the stitches in place better and could even be used to iron your punch needle piece on something 🙌🏻 on the last piece I did, I wanted to do a more tradition punch needle, where the back with all the loops is actually the front. The important thing to know and do with that is to flip your fabric after you draw on it so that it won't be backwards on the loop side.

A different video I watched said to go from the back so maybe that would remove the need to keep trimming all the ends x

Thank you so much for this video, I was threading my punch needle incompletely and also holding it the wrong way around. It works so much better now!
kogan cames (2 months ago)
Sorry but this needle is made for specific fabric and you’re gonna have a extremely hard time and so much extra work and money if you use the puncher on cotton
Shmoxd (2 months ago)
Hmm it worked fine for me:) but you’re right there is better fabric out there for punch needle

Do i really do that? Cool:)
Erik Valencia (2 months ago)
This reminds me of Aari needle work. I think it’s the same concept. To keep the work from coming undone you use another string to lock the top needle.

Which is the best glue for the long lasting needle threads on cloths ???? Plz tell me .....
Alex Garcia (2 months ago)
I have a question: I have thousands of spoils of embroidery thread where I need a couple strands to make it as thick as floss. Can you share a technique (if you have one) on how to make the strands hold together??? I’m talking about over 1000 spools I have that I inherited. I’m trying to learn embroidery because I don’t know what else to do with it.

I do hand embroidery but I've been seeing this style a lot recently so I'm glad this video was suggested to me... hand embroidery takes a long time but I can imagine myself becomming frustrated with this style, and it doesn't seem like you can seperate the thread

I wish I'd looked at your video before I bought my punch needle. Thanks SO much for your clear simple explanation. I'm really good with this stuff usually and for the life of me I could not work out how to keep the stitches in once sewn. I kept losing everything I did. You saved my sanity! I love the idea of using the iron on to seal it. Still going back to old school for my sanity but I really, really appreciate your video.

I've been interested in this for a while, and I heard that you have to use monks cloth. It reacts to the punch needle like no other cloth.

So, I thought that I would do some needle punch. I use to do it all the time but I haven't in years. So, what do we do???? Well, we go look at youtube, (or skillshare) and check out some refresher videos!! First, the thickness of the needle dictates what type of fabric you should use. The thickness of the needle you used you should have used something heavier like a denim or some heavy broadcloth, but it looked like it worked well enough. I totally freaked when I saw that you put the interfacing on the front of the first one but was so glad that you figured it out. The second one you did was really y awesome!! I use to do the needle punch on the back of my kid's jackets and stuff. Now that I am drawing again, I thought it would be great to create a jacket or something now that I draw much better than I did back then. I was so glad to see that you drew yours!! You should do a denim jacket or something, design something for it specifically because you draw very well!! I love skill share btw, I highly recommend it!! I think you did a great job!! Thanks for sharing!!
