Did you know that you can embroider paper? Why yes, you can:
It’s my grandma’s birthday this week, so I took 20 minutes out of my Friday afternoon to dress up her card. (20 minutes, people! Grandma is worth it.)
I feel like you can kind of tell that this is a first try, but I think Grandma will still appreciate it. I’m not gonna lie – those french knots in the center were tricky (and that’s why I went for the more paper-friendly “specks” when I added the pink around the outside). Jenny Hart does a nice tutorial using embroidery transfers, but don’t feel like you need something fancy to get started. I made a light pencil trace of a nickel to get a good circle and just lined up the points of my lazy daisy with that!
