NEW THIS WEEK - June 24th, 2009


Embossed Embroidery

Free Project Instructions!

Embroidery designs come in an endless variety of styles and themes, but it's rare that they jump off the fabric and come to life in three dimensions. This week's new designs will expand your horizons with an extraordinary new take on embroidery.

 

In embossed embroidery, a light, sheer mesh of stitching holds down the fabric in some areas and lets it show through in others, creating a look that's as much about dimension and shine as it is about color and design. These designs work well on fabrics with a pile, like terrycloth or polar fleece.

 

Below you'll find a variety of new designs to explore the elegant look of embossed embroidery - ornate and contemporary alphabets to stitch initials, monograms, and names; a wide variety of simple stamped symbols; and His and Hers (and more) designs to personalize towels for stunning wedding or housewarming gifts.

 

Take your embossed embroidery to the next level with captivating tone-on-tone nature squares. Plus, combine traditional embroidery alphabets with simple embossed backdrops for a unique look that encompasses the best of both worlds.

Ornate Embossed Alphabet

A scrolling satin-stitch frame encircles each script letter in this ornate embossed alphabet. Stitch a single initial grand and large, or group a trio of letters together to create a beautiful monogram. The sheer fill that creates the embossing effect adds a light, elegant touch.
