Farm Life

Free Project Instructions!

This week's new designs come to you from "down on the farm!" As spring continues to warm our fields and gardens, it's time to get those crops in. We celebrate all that is fabulous about farm life with designs featuring fresh flowers, cherished symbols of life on the farm, tractors of all kinds, and adorable farm animals.

Farm life echo designs give a fresh look to traditional farm scenes, while light-stitching Redwork farm equipment gives new meaning to "heavy duty." Stitch your own tractor pull with Farmer Joe and his cute critters on parade! And a Tractor Alphabet is perfect for monogramming items of all kinds with a fun farm life look.

The Tractor Alphabet is a sturdy and fun alphabet for baby blankets, bibs, T-shirts, towels, pillows, book bags, and more. With a coordinating tractor and wagon design, monogramming with the Tractor Alphabet truly becomes poetry in motion!

Please note that the coordinating tractor and hay wagon design in each pack will be larger than the letters and numbers. The alphabets include letters and numbers that are 4.25 inch, 3.25 inch, 2.25 inch and 1.25 inch in height. When you look at the pack size listed on the page, you will see the sizes for the tractor and wagon designs are larger than the letters and numbers in the pack. For example, the 4.25 inch letter alphabet contains a tractor that will fit in the 6"x10" hoop. And the 3.25 inch letter alphabet contains a tractor that will fit in the 5"x7" hoop.

If you're new to monogramming or working with alphabets, we invite you to read the tutorial for monogramming. This tutorial shows you how to arrange letters for monograms in both classic and contemporary ways. Click here for the monogramming with embroidery tutorial!
