Let’s get punching! How to make your punch needle coasters

1.Lay the 9” embroidery hoop on top of the monk's cloth and cut an approx. 1 inch square around it. Repeat with the 10” embroidery hoop/ gripper strip frame.

2. Stretch both monk's cloth squares onto their embroidery hoop frames until they are both drum tight. Cut out your fruity templates. Tape the orange template to the back of the 9” hooped fabric and the strawberry and pineapple to the back of the 10” hooped fabric. Ensure there is a gap between the strawberry and pineapple. Trace all templates with a marker pen against a light source.

Pro Tip: Before you begin punching, remember to release yarn from your yarn ball along the way to avoid tension in your needle. This will prevent your stitches from coming out of the fabric and also ensures the loops on the front of your work are nice and even throughout!

3. Start embroidering your pattern. Make the centre of the design first.

Pro Tip: Push your needle through the little holes in the monk's cloth. These spaces are designed particularly for punch needles to glide through the fabric with ease without creating any rips on it.

4. Embroider the background.

5. embroider the outer orange skin layer.

6. Tidy up your fruity work of art! Trim all the yarn ends on the front of the three fruits with embroidery scissors. Using the tapestry needle, separate any intertwined loops where the different colours meet. This will neaten the lines in your work.

7. Time for the finishing touches! Paint fabric glue on the back of the embroidery and repeat for all 3 designs. Make sure to paint approx. 2 cm of the monk’s cloth around the fruits too, to allow you to cut out the pattern close to the flat stitches without the fabric fraying.

8. Press some felt fabric onto the painted glue. Place a heavy object on top of the felt, e.g a book, and let it dry overnight. Once dry, cut close and around the punch needle stitches to finish the back of your coasters.
