Punch Needle Project Templates
We found that THIS PUNCH NEEDLE TUTORIAL was pretty extensive for a beginner. It has links to the all the different supplies and explanations of why you’d choose them and what they’re good for. We found several other tutorials but this is a good one to start out with.
There are also plenty of links for projects and more on this site and of course our very first free template!
Beginner Punch Needle Project by Studio Koekoek
Studio Koekoek has everything you need for any kind of textile crafts that you can imagine. They have an exhaustive list of tutorials, supplies and several templates for you to try. We chose this one because it’s a great beginner project and includes all the details and supply list that you need to get started and complete this project.
Since it has a limited color palette we think it’s an easier one to try at the beginning of your journey into punch needling!
Flower Burst Punch Needle Pattern by Moogly
Moogly is mainly focused on crochet patterns but anyone who loves to crochet is definitely going to experiment with other textile arts!
Tamara has an amazing amount of projects, tutorials, templates and just plain fun that you should check out.
Her punch needle tutorial is a pattern she created and we love that she also shares the backside of a pattern. Sometimes we look at the back and wonder if we’re doing it all completely wrong so that’s always a great reassurance!
Floral Punch Craft Project by Wonderfil
Wonderfil is a thread company that carry’s all kinds of threads and supplies it to lots of boutiques so it makes sense that they’ve got a few free patterns to work from. When you click through to this project it will give you 3 similar but different patterns that you can use.
The tutorial is thorough and easy to follow so this is a fantastic beginner project.
Sun Pillow by Sugar & Cloth
This is an extensive tutorial and while they repeatedly call it latch hooking they are actually using a punch needle so please forgive us in advance if that confuses you.
If you read the tutorial you will understand the project and we love that they’ve created a pillow with it when they’re done so we had to share this pattern with you!
Don’t worry, you don’t have to make it into a pillow. It sure is cute though!
Intermediate Punch Needle Project
This project is a little bit more advanced than the beginner project!
Grapefruit Stuffy Craft by HomeDay Studio
This project has different links to find different parts of it but you’ll easily be able to follow along and find what you need.
You can start with how to punch needle and finish with how to finish it into a pillow or wall hanging. In between is the template to download and materials so it should be an easy one to follow along.
We only moved it to the intermediate section because it felt like we had to click lots of places to get the actual tutorial on this punch needle project.
Abstract Wall Hanging by DMC (UK)
This project is a gorgeous abstract wall hanging and gives you a list of all the supplies that you’ll need to complete it along with the tutorial.
You can download this pattern for free and there are several other free patterns along with some inexpensive patterns to purchase that you can access directly on their site so be sure to check around while you’re there!
Note that all of their punch needle templates that are available for free are considered to be intermediate projects so take that into consideration.
Monstera Leaf Pillow by Dream a Little Bigger
This actual project template is considered a beginner project by Allison but I think it’s safe to say she has some experience using different kinds of textile crafts so we’re going to file it under intermediate.
If you’re able to create a pillow out of your art then this will be a beginner project but we can’t lie – we are in love with the mostera leaf and it might be the first bigger pattern we try after we get our feet wet with the smaller ones!
Do you think this punch needle project pillow will look at home next to our Monstera plant?
These are not necessarily advanced projects, they’re just not beginner projects if that makes sense. We’re sharing some templates that don’t include all the information you need to complete the project which means you’ll either need to have plenty of materials on hand or you’ll need some experience to be able to estimate what you need to complete the projects!
The intermediate projects still included all the information. These projects are really just free templates that you can download and then you’re on your own.
Grapefruit Purse and home Footstool by Hobby Lobby
This is an inspiration upload by Hobby Lobby but you can click through to the flyer, which includes a few templates at the end including these. We think either of these makes a great project but there’s not tutorial attached, just a template so use it and make a great design with it!
We love both of these and they’ll be on our list. That list that just keeps on growing with projects we love and projects we still want to try!
