Punch the Heart:
I used a combination of DMC embroidery floss and Valdani floss to punch this heart.
- DMC 950 – Flowers
- DMC 3364 – Stems & Leaves
- Valdani 3 strand O507 – Background of heart
I punched this heart using my Ultra Punch needle. I used the medium needle tip and 6 strands of floss for the flowers, stems, and leaves. I used the small needle tip and 3 strand floss for the background. Feel free to use whatever colors you like!
I punched with two different punching depths on my punch needle. I punched the flowers completely using a punching depth of 3 and the background of the heart with a punching depth of 2. This makes the flowers stand out just slightly from the rest of the heart.
Finishing the Punch Needle Valentine Heart:
Displaying the Valentine Heart Punch Needle Project:
I tried tucking the punched heart into my Valentine fabric envelope.
And then I tried it as a bowl filler along with some felted wool hearts.
Finally I added added it to a shelf along with some other Valentine punch needle projects.
I can’t decide which way I prefer the punch needle heart displayed. Perhaps I need to make some more!
