NEW THIS WEEK - July 15th, 2009


Embossed Embroidery Encore

Free Project Instructions!

Three weeks ago, Embossed Embroidery made its debut at Embroidery Library. This classy style combines the texture of plush fabrics with tone-on-tone stitching for an eye-catching, elegant effect.

 

You loved it, you stitched it, and you asked for more. As always, we're happy to oblige! The hundreds of new designs below have been added to the first collection. Choose from simple stamped symbols, elegant towel text to take His and Hers towels to the next level, and tone-on-tone portraits squares of a beautiful horse and hummingbird.

 

A new variation on the popular embossed backdrops has a border for an extra dimensional look. Plus, celebrate home or remember a vacation with outlines of all 50 United States!

 

Don't miss Kenny's video and written instructions for getting the best results with embossed embroidery - and check out the Stitchers' Showcase to see what fellow embroiderers have done with embossed designs!

Embossed embroidery adds delicate detail and dimension to towels, polar fleece, plush blankets, and more. Click here for project instructions and free video!

Karen stitched this cozy set of His and Hers towels as a gift for a special couple.

The towels have a 2 border trim that I felt accented the embroidery without adding more embroidery."
