I really enjoyed making this pillow. Halfway through, I was worried it was going to look awful, because I couldn't punch perfectly even, but I kept going. When it was all finished, I was shocked at how good it looked. You honestly can't mess this up. I'm 44, but a teenager could easily do this.
I bought these kits for myself, and for friends to do at a bachelorette party. The bride is quite the crafter and everyone had fun! The punch needle pillow turned out to be a longer project than a party but I still think it was AWESOME! My pillow is turning out so cute and soft. The videos have all the information you need. Also, punching a needle through fabric is pretty fun and mind soothing.
Super fun but it time consuming, I would recommend doing every other line for the background ( if you plan on doing a background). I enjoyed doing this project and love the finished product.
