I’ve been wanting to try an unconventional cross stitch project for quite some time now. Have you seen the cool things people do, like embroidering a big chair or even a wall? I think it’s so creative! I decided to start with something small since I really don’t do much embroidery. Here’s my attempt at an out-of-the-hoop cross stitch project, a pencil cup!
To finish, I used a little bit of fabric glue to tack down the end strings so they wouldn’t show or come loose during use. And that’s all it took to make an embroidered pencil cup. Don’t you think everyone needs an embroidered pencil cup in their life?!
This was such a fun little project! I loved using some of the embroidery thread in my stash and creating something unique for my office. If you give it a try, send me a pic and I’ll share it on my Facebook page!
