Crochet Chain Yarn Wrapped Easter Eggs

I came across a bag of Spring-colored cotton yarn balls at the thrift store for just a buck fifty. The colors reminded me of Easter, especially. I hadn’t crocheted in a long long while, so I thought this would be a great project to get back into it, since you only need to make a crochet chain.

Machine Embroidered Pillows from Kids Drawings on Blitsy

I have a new tutorial on the Blitsy.com blog: how I made cloud and rainbow pillows from my girls’ drawings with machine embroidery thread.

Machine Embroidered Pillows from Your Kids Drawings - The Silly Pearl on Blitsy

I’m once again using my machine’s stitch library to make designs on fabric, something I love to do. This time I simply used a satin stitch, which I often use in applique, but with the help of my favorite shiny embroidery thread, my satin stitch helped me “draw” my girls’ designs.

Their names are “Cloudy” and “Rainbowy”.
