DIY: Punch Needle Monstera Leaf
This monstera leaf wall hanging will brighten any wall. We had a lot of fun designing and making this punch needle wall art and wanted to share it with you! Happy Making!
Backing Cloth (I used a 10 oz cotton canvas)
Here is the design used in this tutorial. Feel free to use this one for any and all purposes.
Trace the design onto your foundation cloth using bright window or light box. Place design on back of fabric and trace onto front. The flat stitches will be on the front and the loops on the back.
Insert your fabric into your hoop and tighten while pulling the fabric taut.
Begin filling in your design.
Once completed, clean up the back or your piece by snipping any long tails.
Remove from the hoop.
Cut out a piece of backing fabric and pin into place.
Stitch around the design using a zipper foot. Get close to the design but be careful not to stitch your loops. Remember to leave an opening to turn your design right side out.
Note: it may be a good idea to cut your design and backing out first with a 1/2" - 1" seam allowance and zig-zag the edges to prevent fraying.
Turn your design right side out and slip stitch the opening closed.
Add a thread to the back center for hanging.
Hang and enjoy your bright new wall art!
