Textile artist Sara Luna shares a free template so you can make patterns for your embroidered portraits
Punch needle is a really popular way to create beautiful embroidery, but it can be hard to get your idea onto fabric.
Sara Luna (@saralunart) is a visual artist specializing in textile art and punch needle, whose work has been exhibited in New York and Salt Lake City. She is passionate about combining embroidery portraiture with striking color scales to create depth in her creations and bring them to life.
In her Domestika Live, Sara Luna demonstrated how to design a punch needle pattern using a black-and-white portrait photo as a reference.
