Make a Splash

Free Project Instructions!

Part of the fun of embroidery is that you can stitch something to enhance every occasion -- from everyday things like a relaxing bath to special events like a trip to the shore. Make a splash with this week's new designs for bath and beach!

Dress up the bathroom in classy fashion with two collections suitable for sophisticated decor: a tranquil collection of seashells and plants and a quartet of fanciful patterned bathtubs. They'll look great on towels, wall hangings, curtains, and everything else you need to create an at-home getaway.

Boys and girls (and the young at heart) will love adorable new pirates and mermaids in a charming style! Each collection comes with three characters and a coordinating border and towel topper. These designs will be fun on everything from bath time treats to summery beachwear!

 

Turn bath time into playtime with a funny family of bath monsters -- brushing teeth, scrubbing in a tub, and getting squeaky clean. And explore the deep blue sea with sea creatures and a submarine in both applique and stitch-filled designs! Enjoy stitching these designs ... they're a day at the beach!

Let your little mermaid dress up for undersea adventures with this mermaid tail towel! Click here for free project instructions.
