It’s spring, so that can only mean one thing: time to embroider eggs! This is a very special batch of stitchy eggs, because they were hatched especially for a blog post over at the Martha Stewart blog The Crafts Department. (!)
I was so honored when the fine crafty folks from Martha Stewart contacted me recently. They noticed the embroidered eggs I made last year for my Sewing 101 column at Design Sponge, and asked me to create an embroidered-egg tutorial for a post in their egg decorating series this week. Naturally, I was thrilled to egg-cept the invitation!
…grabbed some suuuuper pretty floss (this is from the Anna Maria Horner collection from Anchor)…
Head on over to the Martha Stewart blog The Crafts Department for the full how-to of this project and all the dirty little secrets you need to know to embroider your own eggs.
Great big thanks to the lovely folks at Martha Stewart for inviting me to make some eggs for their blog! Martha’s staff’s egg decorating projects have been such an inspiration to me over the years, and it is truly an honor to be asked to contribute my eggs to their blog.
