How to use a punch needle Hey guys! Lately I’ve gotten a lot of questions on how to use a punch needle so I thought I’d do a quick tutorial on how to use one! Here, I’m using the Ultra Punch, punch needle, which I purchased on Amazon and to start using it, go ahead and put your threader through the punch needle and put your thread through the threader once you’re done, go ahead and pull that through. and on the other side, you’re gonna put the threader through the backside of the needle and you want to make sure it’s through the backside so that’s where the tail of your thread falls. Once you’re done, go ahead and leave about an inch of thread. When you start punching, it’s important to go all the way down to the base of the needle so that your loops are consistent on the other side and they’re not different sizes. You want to make sure that you’re not pulling your needle out too far. You want to basically graze the surface of the fabric so that you’re not unraveling the thread – you want it to be consistent all the way throughout. This is the other side! This is actually supposed to be the “right” side but it just all depends on your preference whether you like the back side or the front side, but the whole purpose of the punch needle is to get that “hooked rug” look. If you make a mistake, it’s so easy to undo the thread. Just go ahead and pull it out, and rub your fabric together and it will bunch up your fabric together and basically get rid of all the holes in your fabric and it will be as if it was new!
