Embroidery Stitch Sampler - Pysanky Egg
$ 15.00

4 available

The Pysanky Sampler is a great introduction to basic stitches used in embroidery.  Each stitch is printed right onto the fabric with an easy-to-follow lettered guide, plus you get to practice the stitch several more times on the sampler finishing with the beautiful egg in the center which can be framed as a finished piece in a 3" hoop.

Pysanky is rooted in the Ukrainian verb "to write."  In this case, it refers to the pretty patterns you would scrawl across the eggs.  Ukrainian Easter eggs often feature intricate designs and symbols, such as flowers, animals and geometric shapes, each with its own significance.
