Baaad24in24: Punchin’ Real Good

I have a goal of FINISHING 24 projects in 2024; Join me? They can be big or small, new or old, and in any fibre craft; just get ‘er done.

Today’s topic: Needle Punchin’ Real Good

My name is Paula and I am a fibre art addict. It was two wild weeks between the time I took a punch needle class, and the point I ran out of the huge monk cloth I took home that first night. In between was a maelstrom of finished objects that I am call my #15 FO (finished object… in this case a collection) for my #baaad24in24 challenge.

It all started with a workshop at our lovely sister shop, Baaad Rabbit Fibre Arts Co, with an intro kit and lesson from Sahm from Kussen and Kiss. The first and second were finished by the evening of that first class, having come home and immediately experimented with making my own hoops with the Rico monk cloth we sell in both small and large rolls. With the matching intro kit + experiment under my belt, I went big the very next day by ripping out the unused canvas on a large wooden frame (like those purchased in bulk at Deserres) and burning my fingers while refamiliarizing myself with a glue gun!

And then it was off to the races… the first was a portrait of Jiji from Kiki’s Delivery Service, started and completed in 3 days… Then a mini lemon portrait as a palette cleanser (which took 2 hours from raw materials to FO)…

Lastly a matching large-scale Totoro for the final installment.

And then I had no more cloth to work with. Apparently that was the only way to stop this deep dive. I knit very little in June but instead took a detour into some lovely immediate gratification within the slow art movement. And it was delightful!
