There’s a revival going on: chicken-scratch embroidery. It’s not surprising to see this traditional embroidery technique on vintage aprons, but it’s making a comeback in children’s clothing and home decor, too. If you’d like to try your hand, you can find instructions and a chart for a free starter project at Pegasus Originals Inc. The company offers lots of chicken-scratch charts for sale through its network of retailers. You can find a retailer in your area on Pegasus’ search page.
