Simply Spring

Free Project Instructions!

Spring is a wondrous time, when all the trees are budding and the birds are singing. Fresh air chases away cabin fever, and there's an irresistible need to put away winter-themed towels and linens, and replace them with things that are brighter, more colorful, and as fresh and new as a warm, spring day.

New "Simply" designs are the ultimate cure for the post-winter blues. They use just one color thread, so they're quick to set up and stitch. Use a tone-on-tone scheme for subtle accents and embellishments on towels and table linens. Or, use bright and bold colors to make a "Spring!" statement on tote bags, pillow shams, shirts, and skirts.

Choose from a variety of exciting and diverse themes, from scenic gardens to irises, butterflies to buzzing dragonflies. All of them will bring a "Think Spring!" spirit to your home and wardrobe, along with a breath of fresh, warm air.

These new designs join other "Simply" designs that were previously released. Click here for Simply Red, and click here for Simply Rooster. And, enjoy the new designs!
