Sweet Dreams

NEW THIS WEEK - June 17th, 2015


Send your loved ones off into never-never land with brand new sweet dreams designs! Whether you're looking to stitch a new set of pajamas, bed linens, or pillowcase covers, these nighttime motifs are terrific options for stitching any bedtime-ready project.

Slip into a peaceful night's sleep with intricate dream catchers, or adorn nursery gear with cute-as-a-button sleepy animal designs. Goodnight sayings (think Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star or Always Kiss Me Goodnight!) are great for stitching on light bed linens and pillowcases. There's even new stuffie designs to make your own nursery mobile!

Enjoy these new dreamland designs!

A mobile mimicking the night sky is a terrific addition to any nursery. Learn how to make the project.


In Native American culture, a dream catcher features a woven web inside of a willow hoop and is known for keeping away nightmares. We've created three versions of the beautiful, intricate artifacts -- one floral version, one pastel version, and one bright and colorful version.
     
 
Available in four sizes:
6.79" x 11.74" and 5.42" x 9.38"
 4.50" x 7.78" and 3.97" x 6.85"
  Available in four sizes:
6.84" x 11.63" and 5.56" x 9.40"
 4.65" x 7.80" and 4.00" x 6.85"


All three of the designs feature feathers and beads, which are common dream catcher embellishments. This design also includes a depiction of a spider, due to the fact that the Ojibwe word for dream catcher is also the inanimate word for "spider".
 
Available in four sizes:
6.06" x 11.74" and 4.86" x 9.40" and 4.03" x 7.80" and 3.55" x 6.86"
