I like the apron. The technique does resemble lace when complete. I think I'll give it a try...Thanks!Carolyn http://www.stitchopedia.comAn encyclopedia of needlepoint stitches…
That's an awesome post. Thanks so much for the tutorials!
This brought backsome memories, haven't done this since school
What a fun stitch combination!! Thanks for the lovely details :)
Thanks for the step-by-step pictures! I think I've only seen drawings so far and this is much better.
Chicken scratch embroidery is so lovely and reminds me of my beloved grandmother. Thank you so much for sharing this tutorial.
Super Cool. Must try. Thanks very much.JZ in VA
Oh, my mom made me a dress in grade school that was lavender gingham with chicken scratch on the bodice and the hem. I loved that dress! Thanks for the reminder and the tutorial. I'd like to give this a try.
Hi, I would like to know where I can purchase the red and white checkered material you used; I presume it is not gingham?Thanks,Marva
Marva, it is gingham! I had this piece in my fabric stash but I've seen gingham in lots of different colors at Joann Fabrics. Try to get 100% cotton if you can - the poly/cotton blend just doesn't feel as nice.
I just love the last photo!
Wonderful tutorial thank you so much for showing us how!hugs ginger
What a great tutorial you did..and the instructions are so easy to follow. I just found your blog and I think it's wonderful..I hope you don't mind, I've added you to my list of blogs I enjoy looking at
In 1964, when expecting our first child, I made curtains from 1/4" yellow checked gingham fabric. If you use the smaller checks, you can just do the regular cross stitches on the corners of the checks. I designed bluebirds for the curtains.
Thank you for this tutorial...i have to try it soon....
