Under the Sea
 

Free Project Instructions!

Take a walk along the beach; feel the sand between your toes, hear the roar of the ocean waves. Colorful fish play in the water, and seagulls fly above.

Scroll down the page for an absolute treasure of new designs! Tropical fish in bright and bold hues flit and dart in underwater sea greens; starfish and seashells are tucked in light and breezy running stitches that echo waves and coral.

These new designs are an absolute delight on tote bags, beach towels, and bath towels, too. Stitch colorful throw pillows for a seaside getaway, and memorialize your family trips to the shore with framed pieces and quilts.

Keep your eye out for not-so-buried treasure as you walk along the beach this week. Enjoy the new designs!
