Giveaway punch needle cushion

Giveaway punch needle cushion

Hi there, sweet peeps! I’m still feeling overwhelmed and anxious about all that is happening in the world right now. Trying to do my best not to become too scared, taking one day at a time and being as mindful as I can be… living in the moment as much as possible. As I’ve said before, crafting is a big help for me, and I think and hope you can relate and are able to find relief by creating as well.

It all begins with a drawing and picking out colors

I’m finishing one project after the other, not even taking the time to properly show you here, on Instagram, or on Facebook.
Do you remember my series “follow-up Friday”? Maybe I should restart?

Next step: lots and lots of blissful punch needling ???

Anyway: this week saw the completion of a new punch needle cushion! I’ve been showing some progress shots, and it’s about time for its big ta-dah!
With reference to the leaf cushion(s) in my punch needle book, and the ones I recently designed for Studio Koekoek – and that you can find the patterns of in the soon to be released “Hobbyhandig Punch Needle Special” – I played some more with the ‘leaf theme’.
I drew differently shaped leaves and picked totally different colors, though, and am so smitten with the way this one turned out…

In order to spread some light in these dark times, I’m planning on a couple of giveways here on the blog and/or via my other social media. The first one is giving this cushion away!
As you can see, it has a punch needled front and crocheted back, plus a (crocheted) pompom trim. Size: ca 38 x 28 cm (stuffed with fibre fill).

I’ll ship internationally – so if you’d like to own this cushion, no matter where your are in the world: simply enter by leaving a comment!

… and its punch needled front!

I’ll pick a winner by April 6, 2020, 2019 (24:00 CET). If I do not hear back from the winner within 24 hrs after notification, a new winner will be drawn.

Good luck to all of you, and please: stay safe!
edit: this giveaway is now closed – thank you for participating! A random number generator picked a winner –> the cushion is on its way to the UK 🙂

    I recently have started punch needle so love looking at all the amazing things people are making

  • Love the strong colour choices and variety in pattern. Made even nicer with the crochet back and tufted edging. Nice work!

  • Wat een ‘pronkje’ van een kussen. Deze staat súper op mijn tuinbank? Want waarom zelf punchen als je er eentje kunt winnen van dé punchdiva!?
    En wat betreft je ‘ follow up friday’ , super idee om dat weer op te starten.
    Liefs ,Nynke

  • Dankje voor deze give away! Dit kussen zou ik graag cadeau geven aan mijn dochter als ik het zou winnen 😉 Ze accepteert de situatie maar baalt enorm nu ze haar studievrienden en live colleges op ArtEZ erg mist momenteel. Online gààt maar is niet hetzelfde. Geldt voor ons allen. Maar zou een leuk ‘hart onder de riem’ voor haar zijn! X Marianne Tove

  • Seriously wow! This cushion made me smile when I saw it my Instagram feed. So lovely!

  • Dear Marianne, it’s such a joy and inspiration to follow your creativity through your small IG squares. Follow-up Fridays would be nice to read again?? I love your gorgeous leaf punch needle pillow and that you made a crocheted back with pom poms!! It’s divine! Stay safe too dear ??

  • This is an amazing work of art. I would love to try punchneedle and I think it’s fabulous that you have combined it with crochet. Love it ?

  • Wat een mooie krachtige kleurcombinatie en toch het groene planten gevoel door patroon…
    Je hebt me ook op een idee gebracht door de achter kant te haken, kun je kiezen welke “ voor” kant vandaag … ☺️
