Going to have fun creating this woven look using an embroidery technique. Found this project on the Japanese site, Tetote Note. The swatches would be great for darning or decorating cloth. All you need is: 1) cloth, 2) embroidery thread, 3) embroidery frame, 4) round template, 5) embroidery needle, 6) washable chaco marker and 7) threading scissors. The instruction in Japanese is located here but the photos make this DIY project easy to follow.
