stitched pencil cup Stitched Pencil Cup
I love when people find inspiration to stitch on everyday objects that weren’t necessarily intended for stitchery. Camilla of Family Chic transformed an inexpensive IKEA pencil cup with some yarn and a tapestry needle. It’s fun to play with different stitches and design, and would be easy to unthread and change out when you get tired of your current stitches. A couple of summers ago, I did a similar thing on my mesh bicycle basket. Feather and blanket stitches worked particularly well, and I love seeing the colorful embroidery while I’m riding. What other everyday objects can you think of that would work well for stitchery?
