More Velvet, Please...

Punch Needle using Velvet by Rose Clay at ThreeSheepStudio.com

I've been completely enjoying punching with velvet !
And, even though I thought I would use it for small
projects, I couldn't resist doing a larger flower
design.  Of course, punching flowers
takes a lot of colors...
off to the thread store, once again...

finding every reason to keep adding
to my velvet collection.
Even if I don't need every color,
I WANT every color !
Come on ladies, there must be 
someone else out there like me !
Does anyone know what I am talking about ??

I did learn a thing or two while on this adventure.
The Petite Velvet can be punched using the 
medium needle.  I always try to buy the 'Petite'.
Sometimes, a certain color may only come in 
a regular Very Velvet, (not Petite).  In that case,
you will have to use the large needle.
(The Petite Velvet has 15 yards on a card,
whereas the regular velvet has 10 yards.)

"The Windowbox" punch needle design 
will use a combination of 
velvets and Valdani variegated Perle Cotton thread.

More velvet, please...

Enjoy your day...

  6. They look spectacular in the projects you are using them in Rowe. I do not need them but you have me wondering how they would look couched in a Sue Spargo piece, or maybe even stitched like silken chenille? Oh no!

  7. Wow! They look so...wait for it...petal soft!!! Lol. Couldn't resist, but they really do. I have my Sparrow piece kitted & ready to start, but decided to hold off until the baby comes. Meredith is at 34 weeks so the nesting has begun! The velvet is awesome. I will try it one day! The countdown to baby continues!

  10. Love the texture this brings with the pearl cotton. Can anyone advise on a site for a DMC floss conversion to Valdani pearl cotton? Thank you. pltasker@med.umich.edu
