Desert Sun Punch Needle Project Kit #PN1

*** NOTE: This project kit is for the material supplies only.  The Desert Sun Pattern guide is available to Maker's Academy Members and those who have enrolled in the Punch Needle Foundations Course*** 

Skill Level Required for this pattern: Excited Newbie + (beginner level)

We have put a lot of love into curating these kits for our members. The punch needle materials here are great quality.  Plus, everything has been tried and tested by me, so we know you will have the best journey with punch needle as possible.


This kit includes the foundation fabric, yarn and display hoop for the beginner’s punch needle pattern DESERT SUN.   This kit includes:


  • 30cm x 30cm Square of 100% Cotton Monk’s Cloth

I've tested so many types of different material so that you don't have too!  This foundation fabric is an absolute dream to punch with. It’s a sturdy, 100% cotton fabric with a nice loose weave (about 12 holes per inch). It’s quite unique as far as fabrics go, because it’s hardwearing enough to allow you to punch down with oomph, and the fabric makes way for your needle and almost hugs the stitches as you punch along. 

  • Nurge no.5 - 8mm x 22cm (8.7") Wooden Display Hoop

Nurge is a well known brand and this is a great hoop for displaying your finished piece in.


  • 5 x balls of bulky weight yarn:
    • Cream 50g
    • Terracotta 25g
    • Gold 25g
    • Blush Pink 25g
    • Dark Dusky Green 25g

 All the yarn colours required to complete your DESERT SUN punch needle pattern.


    This pattern is designed to suit a ‘Chunky’ style punch needle (including the Oxford #10 Reg or Lavor Chunky Adjustable Punch Needle). If you need to buy your punch needle and other standard supplies (like the transfer pen or scissors), check out our Starter Kit or individual supplies here in the punch needle section of the Clever Poppy shop!


    Additional Notes: 

    • We strive to use sustainable packaging where possible.  All the packaging used in this kit is compostable including the clear eco-bags sourced from econic packaging.
