Vintage Chicken Scratch design
What Is Chicken Scratch Embroidery?
As the early settlers moved across America, the craft came with them. Thus, it’s known by different names: Amish embroidery, depression lace, lace stitch, and snowflake embroidery.
Chicken Scratch is an easy type of embroidery, which gives the impression of appliquéd lace. With certain stitches, the thread or floss creates a lacelike design on the fabric. Three stitches are used to create chicken scratch embroidery – the double cross-stitch, the straight running stitch, and the weaving stitch. (click here to see how the stitch is embroidered)
