This was in one of my Standard Slim Rotary attachment boxes. I have no clue what it is. Bobbin in photo to show size.

My guess is it's either a punch hook for making rugs or a tool for mending nets.

Oh my goodness, how can I get one of those? 

For our local museum I did a demo of candlewicking and how it evolved into chenille and eventually led to the carpet industry here in north Georgia.  The development of machines to make chenille got more and more elaborate and they started to manufacture small rugs and bath mats.  The machines for creating carpet are not very different, just much bigger.

Wow, I have a plastic set of punch needles and back in the 70s I had an original Russian embroidery needle which is what the punch embroidery evolved from. The old Russian needles were very small, maybe 2" long, half was a small brass tube and the other half was the needle itself. I lost it somewhere and have never seen another one.

I've seen them named French Embroidery Art Needles.  Here's a pic of a set that I sold quite a while back.  I might have another one around here somewhere if someone's really interested.  Probably not as complete, though.
