Chicken Scratch or Gingham Embroidery
This wonderful project idea was submitted by Laurie Latour of Jacksonville, Florida. Laurie is an expert at this creative embroidery and she does some really beautiful work, some of which is shown here. This style of craft is often called Depression Lace among other things and is a very old technique. Any type of gingham design fabric can be used but homespun is most similar to the vintage feed sack fabrics that our grandmothers used.
