Quick-Stitch Spring

NEW THIS WEEK - April 14th, 2010

 

Spring in a Stitch

Free Project Instructions!

As the weather gets warmer, there's so much to do ... spring cleaning, gardening, just getting outside and enjoying nature as it wakes from its slumber. It's a perfect time for light and bright embroidery that matches the spirit of the season! This week's new designs will stitch up quickly so you'll have plenty of time to let your creativity blossom.

 

A flock of adorable vintage-stitch birds are perfect for fabrics that need light-stitching embroidery -- tea towels, T-shirts, and more. They'll look great perched together on a quilt, too! Keep things light with some fantastic spring redwork designs, featuring pretty silhouettes filled with springtime scenes.

 

This spring's recent Flowers of Faith designs were so popular, we grew a bunch of new Flowers of Creativity to celebrate sewing, knitting, quilting, scrapbooking, and lots more creative pastimes! You'll love them on everything from shirts to totes and organizers for your crafting supplies. And finally, pick a handful of springtime doodles to embellish seasonal decor and wearables with a splash of color.


Go green when you reuse an old T-shirt to make this handy tote bag. Click here for free project instructions!
