Chicken Scratch Embroidery

Chicken Scratch is an easy and fun type of embroidery done on gingham fabric which gives the impression of appliqued lace. Known by many names including Cross Stitch on Gingham and Snowflaking, Chicken Scratch was made popular in 1982 by Pegasus Originals, Inc. It is now becoming very popular again. We have a sample free project here for you to do as well as complete instructions and a wealth of designs available in our four books.
