How To Tuesday: Crewel Embroidery

This post is written by Mandi Jackson especially for the Pink Auction blog. Slainté.

There isn't any counting involved in this style of embroidery, and it does not require evenweave fabric, so curves can be sharper and more realistic. Here are some amazing sites to inspire you.
