Chicken scratch needlebook

My father started to learn embroidery on paper, so I made a needlebook for his birthday. The size is 5 x 5 cm or 2 x 2 inch. The chicken scratch on the front is stitched with DMC 80. The edge is a Palestrina stitch with perle 8.
 Mary Corbet wrote a tutorial about using the Palestrina stitch on an edge here.


  1. what a neat littler needle case. So good you shared the size as it is hard to decide how big or small things are from a photo.

  2. This is very nice gift for an embroider.

  3. such a lovely gift!! I think gingham cloth is so refreshing, bright...

  4. Deze is leuk zeg!
    Ik heb zelf laatst een tweede gemaakt van sprookjesvilt: mooi materiaal dus ziet er snel mooi uit. Maar nu ik die van jou zie moet ik toch ook maar eens een geborduurde maken :)
