Stitched Stationery

Source: Martha Stewart Weddings, Winter 2007


With warm and fuzzy yarn accents, a plain stationery set becomes wedding worthy. Make tiny dots where you want holes for stitches to be (or have them printed, if you can). Choose a textured stock and matching envelope (we lined ours with gift wrap), and a soft ink color to make cards refined.


  • Japanese hole punch

  • Yarn and a yarn needle


  1. Punch holes with a Japanese hole punch.

  2. Thread a single strand of yarn on a yarn needle; knot one end, stitch accents; knot again at end.

  3. Each 5-by-7-inch invitation requires a 7-inch length of yarn for each side, stitched in a short/long pattern and tied in a bow at the center. For 3 1/2-by-5-inch reply cards, use two 2 1/2-inch lengths of yarn; for 4-by-5 1/2-inch programs, use one 17-inch length of yarn.
