If you are looking for an easy stitching activity for all ages, embroidered cards are the perfect choice. They don’t require a lot of special equipment or supplies and the techniques are easy to learn.
This is a perfect craft for a group – either children or adults will enjoy it and have a beautiful project completed in under an hour.
The pattern from Epida Designs includes five different stitching templates. You just need cards, thread and a needle. You can buy blank cards at a discount store or cut your own from card stock.
The PDF pattern is available for instant download, so you can start sewing right away.
These cards are made by poking holes in the cards and then stitching the thread through.
It is similar to this tutorial.
Any thread can be used for this – embroidery floss, perle cotton or crochet cotton.
