Request-fest!
NEW THIS WEEK - May 29th 2013
We are always inspired by your requests and ideas, and we appreciate each and every one. This week's new designs are a celebration of your excellent ideas!

Designs on this page were created from stitchers' ideas and special requests. The variety ranges from Animals on the Edge for children's items, to inky fish as fashionable additions to men's clothing.

Sketched flower arrangements are light and lovely additions to table linens and pillow covers. Tasty
new food and beverage "echoes" are wonderful when stitched onto placemats and kitchen towels.


Animals on the Edge

Animals on the Edge are designed for the bottom of a towel, blanket border, bib edge, and more, creating a lively "peeking" effect. Each design is offered in stitch-filled and applique versions. Project instructions demonstrate how to line up the designs so they're right on the edge. One tutorial demonstrates with a stitch-filled design; the other with an applique design.

The original Animals on the Edge designs were wildly popular, and dozens of requests came pouring in for more. We received such great ideas, and tried to fill them all! African animals are always a popular theme for children's items. This giraffe is charming when you stitch him on the edge of towels. Or, use in a quilt block for an edgy look!

MaryAnne, who breeds Havanese dogs, requested they get the sketch treatment. The Havanese is the national dog of Cuba, and is that country's only native breed.

A light-stitching Havanese sketch is delightful for dog-lovers on towels, shirts, totes, and more!
