Kiddin' Around

Free Project Instructions!

 

Little boys and girls have active, energetic imaginations. One minute they're storming the castle and battling dragons, and the next they're sailing the stormy seas, and making their stuffed teddy bears walk the plank. Enrich your little ones' imaginations with these new designs!

Playful, retro-style cowboys, astronauts, and pirates whisk tiny tots away on exciting adventures. Gallop through the Wild, Wild West, sail the stormy seas, or zoom through outer space, and create exhilarating themes for kids' bedrooms and play rooms.

Zip back in time and meet darling dinosaurs with sweet smiles. This prehistoric pack of pals, including Tyler the T-Rex and Pterry the Pterodactyl, can't wait to snuggle and play.

Redwork critters take on a variety of roles as they ponder what they want to be when they grow up. The adorable animals practice being a rock star, scientist, and more. Quick-to-stitch, the designs will race their way onto shirts, bibs, and more!
