Run for the Border

Free Project Instructions!

Calling one and all ... it's time to make a run for the border! You love border and corner embroidery designs because they're so useful and versatile on fashionable clothing, home decor, and pretty much anything else you can stitch. This week's gigantic batch of new designs are ready to liven up your own personal embroidery library with every theme and style imaginable!

 

Stitch a splash of color with brilliant stained glass style designs, all-natural thistles, and a funky patterned floral paradise. Fashionable plaid fruit and playful monkeys make more bright and fun embellishments! Get classy with wrought iron-inspired designs, dainty damask, regal Napoleonic emblems, and scrolling golden baroque designs. Create airy, lovely embroidery with light-stitching gingko leaves, beautiful and feminine floral filigree, and light, open woodsy roses and woodcut designs. And finally, explore the wild side with adventurous nautical designs, wild west motifs, and tough tribal swirls!

 

The medium size of each border is formatted for the Endless Hoop; they may also be used in standard hoops. Pick up as many pairs as you like and let the creative dash begin!

Give that old sweater a new life - as a cozy pillow displaying your favorite embroidery designs. Click here for free project instructions!
