A Day at the Zoo

Free Project Instructions!

Spend a day at the zoo with this week's "wild" new designs! Whether they're exotic monkeys and pandas or down-home deer and sheep, animals inspire wonder in kids of all ages. Rediscover the joy of our furred, feathered, and amphibious friends when you stitch these designs for gifts, decor, kids' clothes, and lots more.

 

A dozen animals adorned with rustic patchwork make a clever and crafty embellishment for children's shirts and blankets. But they're not just for kids -- fashionable teens and grown-ups will smile at these critters too!

 

If you like in-the-hoop projects, you'll love our new door hangers -- with animals just "hangin' around" by their tails and arms and such -- and pencil toppers. Coordinating heirloom applique animals round out this delightful zoo.

 

Scroll down this page to explore the wild world of embroidery. Plus, get ready for graduation season with a new tree of Tweets in caps and gowns!
