Announcement   Looking for unique, folk art, whimsical, vintage-inspired home decor or gifts? Original and Handmade punch needle figures, pillows, pin cushions, pictures & locker hooked pillows, baskets, e-reader and iPad covers, trivets & pads. These items make wonderful and unique gifts as well as enhancing your own home.

I hope you find my fiber creations unique, special and comfortable. All my listings are originals, created and made by me. I love to punch needle and locker hook, and sew. I add or use vintage items to add character and time-worn care to my creations.

Punch needle is a very old rug-hooking technique done on a much smaller scale. It uses a special needle and embroidery floss to punch through a fabric making tiny loops. It is sometimes referred to as "thread painting". When you look at a needle punched item, each small loop is a stitch! I use mostly hand-dyed and over-dyed cotton floss. It is very time consuming but I love the texture and feel! I have an array of punch needle characters (Whimsies) to add to your every-day or holiday's decor. Pillows and pin cushions and framed punch pictures are also available.

Locker hooking is another old rug hooking technique similar to Rug Punch in that it uses strips of fabric or yarn and, like crocheting in that it uses a hook, but is it's own unique craft. The textures and colors are amazing! The trivets are wonderful for any style or decor , as are the pillows and cute baskets.

I am happy to do custom orders and would love to create with you! Please feel free to convo me with any questions or information needs.

Thanks for dropping in to visit my Fern Cottage. I hope you found something that spoke to you!
