Did you know that the Oxford Punch Needle can be used to punch directly on a flannel weight wool fabric? The needle glides easily through the backing and creates a lovely effect! The real beauty of this method is that you don’t have to punch any background-the wool fabric itself becomes the background! We’ll use the #14 “Mini” Oxford Punch Needle and worsted weight yarn to make a small 14” pillow. Not only will you learn to punch on wool, you’ll also learn an easy was to make a pillow.
