Fruit Cocktail

Free project instructions

 

This weekend's Embroidery Encore brings a fruit cocktail of charming borders and corners!

Light-stitching designs are delightfully reminiscent of classic hand embroidery, and make lovely additions to lightweight and low-nap fabrics.

Strawberries, apples, grapes, cherries, mangoes, and more are perfectly ripe, and ready to bring tasteful style to your stitching. The borders and corners in all the designs below are sized proportionately, making it easy to coordinate them together into frames and borders.

Enjoy a fresh fruit cocktail!
