Probably one of the most beautiful garments done with the Easy Punch Embroidery Machine. Showing it's marvelous versatility. Stitched on a printed fabric and made into a glorious robe. Stitched with a combination of two threads through the medium needle at the same. A fantastic blend of metallic and acrylic threads for a dedicated shimmer in the embroidery. Another way to utilize the Easy Punch Embroidery Machine to it's fullest. This garment is featured in the great book by Marinda Stewart titled "Punch Needle, The Complete Guide". Other Barb Keeling designs and garments are featured in this most enjoyable book.

Before the advent of our Easy Punch Embroidery Machine, this beautiful craft was done manually with a hand punch, one stitch at a time. Prior to the invention of the machine 30 years ago, we manufactured, demonstrated and sold a hand punch called Plush Punch. There are purists that prefer doing the craft this old fashioned way and for that reason we still have our hand punch available. It uses sewing threads and embroidery floss and has the ability to do different length loops. It is on our Website in both the Easy Punch section as well as the the Cloth Doll Supplies as it is perfect for regular punch embroidery, cloth doll faces and cloth doll body embellishment. Check it out. A great addition when combined with Easy Punch stitching.
