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?

    Window and door screen jump first into my mind. A great way to reuse old screen or leftover pieces from a home improvement project.
