Punch Needle Angel Doll

I know I shouldn't be using my hand, but I have been stitching all week and just had to punch something.
I decided that punching a pillow would be too much work, so I came up with something new to do.
I took one of Primitive Blessing's patterns and made it into a doll shape. I moved the arms down, to the side, so it would be easier when sewing. I left out the wings and used vine twigs instead. On the original, she had a tie with stars, so I made one with jute thread and bells. For the bottom, I left it open and then cut a piece of wool in an oval, to give it a wider bottom, for sitting. I am not sure on her wings, I just sewed them on with thread, so I might redo them.

I just love her. I agree with Ann ~ you have to be a fast puncher.

How great is that doll! I just love it. I didn't realize that punching was so fast - or maybe you're just fast! But she is great!

I've not had a chance to be exposed to learning punch needle. (I'm geographically challenged!)
This is so lovely. Great work! :)
