Chicken-Scratch Pillows


Chicken-scratch. An early American craft known by many different names, some of which are: Amish Lace; Gingham Embroidery; Depression Lace and Snowflake Embroidery.


There are three basic stitches involved in Chicken-Scratch: the double cross stitch; the straight running stitch; and the woven circle stitch. It’s really very simple once you get going. This Celtic Cross pillow was a mother’s day present I made for my mom.
