Let your stitches run wild with mixed-media embroidery! Embroiderer Nichole Vogelsinger shows you how to make three boho-chic hoop designs using a combination of stitches, fabrics (great for stash-busting!) and embellishments such as beads, buttons and more.
Traditional embroidery is great, but lately everyone's fiber radars seem to be focused on the beautiful textures created with punch needle (also called needle punching). The craft looks eerily similar to embroidery when you just see the tools, as you need embroidery floss or yarn, a hoop, fabric and scissors to start. But that extra tool — the punch needle itself — makes a big difference.
