Textured Portraits of Animals and People Created With Punch Needle Embroidery

A few weeks ago, I made an attempt at punch needle embroidery for a small personal project. I have to confess it wasn't easy for someone like me who had never worked with the tool ever before. It took me a while to get used to the working of the needle on fabric. But once I got the rhythm going, the process quickly became fun and meditative. 

Studio Myome creates whimsical illustrations using punch needle and yarn which has different result than embroidering with thread. The use of yarn brings beautiful texture to the portraits of people and animals ensuring the end result in not flat. Have you worked with punch needle? How was your experience?
